MANILA - Anda, Pangasinan Mayor Aldrin Cerdan faces a graft case before the Sandiganbayan over an allegedly anomalous rental of heavy equipment.

In a charge sheet filed by the Ombudsman, Cerdan is accused of giving undue advantage to private firm JASA Builders.

Cerdan allegedly rented out a backhoe, a payloader, and dump trucks from JASA for P100,000 without an authorization from the Sangguniang Bayan.

Cerdan's case will be raffled off on Friday. He may then post a P30,000 bail.
