MANILA, Philippines – A radio dzMM reporter lost some of his valuables from thieves in Pasig City on Tuesday evening.

Radio reporter Arnell Ozaeta said thieves took some P20,000 worth of valuables from his Nissan Bravado truck that was parked along Topaz Street in Barangay San Antonio.

A closed-circuit television (CCTV) camera was able to capture the theft incident.

The footage showed two men destroying the pick-up truck's "camper shell" cover and then took off with Ozaeta's belongings.

Ozaeta said he was also victimized by "bukas-kotse" thieves last year in the same barangay while his car was parked along Escriva Drive. – report from Henry Atuelan, dzMM
