SOCO host Gus Abelgas falls victim to akyat bahay gang

ABS-CBN reporter and “SOCO: Scene of the Crime Operatives” host Gus Abelgas has become a victim of Akyat Bahay gang who ransacked his residence over the weekend.

In a radio interview, Abelgas said the robbery at his home in Sta. Rosa, Laguna may have happened between 1:30 to 9:00 p.m. on Sunday, October 28.

Abelgas lost his LED television and air bed to the robbers.

Initial reports said police authorities are now looking for an L300 white van with plate number ZDX 699, the driver of which did not claim his license back while leaving the village.

The investigation is still ongoing, but Abelgas suspect the incident might be an inside job.

“Malamang planado. Parang ang lumalabas may kakontsaba sa loob eh. Alam ‘yung oras na wala kami,” said Abelgas who descibed the incident as “ironic” as he was victimized by the same kind of criminals whom he talks about in his SOCO reports.
