TWO unidentified armed men held up the Small Town Lottery (STL) station in Purok 3, Bgy. Nanhaya, Victoria, Laguna, and carted away P65,730 in collection money Thursday night.

A report submitted to acting Laguna police director Senior Supt. Joel C. Pernito said the two unidentified suspects were reportedly armed with short firearms and wearing bonnets.

Police said at about 11:45 p.m., the Victoria Police Station received an information from a concerned citizen about an ongoing robbery at an STL station under the Ramloid Management Corporation.

Julian Lumang, 61, manager of the Small Town Lottery, said the robbery occured while three of his employees were watching television when the suspects suddenly arrived and at gunpoint took the collection money and escaped on board a white car.
