TWO prisoners on Sunday escaped from the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP) detention facility in Bgy. Timugan, Los Baños, Laguna.
Mark Robin Gira, and Christopher Paco managed to escape by destroying the padlock of their cell.
Los Baños police chief Lt. Col. Louie Dionglay said Gira has a pending case for violation of Republic Act 7610 or qualified seduction while Paco is facing robbery and drug charges.
Duty jailguard PSSg. Velentino Duldulao was conducting a head count at 5 a.m. on Sunday when he noticed that the padlock of Dorm 7 cell had been forcibly opened.
He immediately alerted his fellow guards.
