Estrao said town cashier and paymaster Deding Guintos reported to him that only the cash amountuing to P472,800 was taken away by the robbers, leaving behind the cheques.

The Hinoba-an mayor also told NDB the P472,800 cash taken was intended for today’s (MOnday) distribution to the town’s 13 barangays for feeding programs in relation to the celebration of the Nutrition Month.

Saying he is not ruling out the possibility of an inside job, Estrao said the money was withdrawn from the bank Thursday and was supposedly distributed Friday.

"We decided to make the distribution tomorrow (today Monday) to give way to Friday’s Civil Service culmination program," he said.

"We and the local police could not yet determine how many people forcibly entered the hall and the treasurer’s office. Probably the indicent took place late Saturday night. It was only discovered this (yesterday Sunday) afternoon at around 2:30 when the main door was found open with the padlock damaged," Estrao added.

He also said the suspects brought with them a vault cutter and an iron bar the suspects left behind.
