CABANATUAN City -- A local branch of a courier company was robbed at gunpoint by an unidentified man here last Wednesday.

Robbed was the LBC Express, Inc. branch at the city public market on Flores Bldg. corners Melencio and Crisostomo Streets, Bgy. Sanbermecristi, this city.
   
City police officer-in-charge Supt. Ponciano P. Zafra said the suspect entered the establishment at 7:42 a.m. and posed as a customer sending out a remittance.
   
Then he suddenly grabbed branch customer associate Regine Adao, 23, single, of 333 Purok 3, Bgy. Sumacab Norte, and held her at gunpoint before carting away P7,439 cash from the counter.
   
Zafra said they are still conducting follow-up investigation for the possible identification and arrest of the suspect.
