Patricia Javier Robbed of Cash & Jewelry in ‘Basag Kotse’ Modus in Marikina

Don’t leave your bags and valuables inside your car in plain sight of robbers. This has been the reminder of the PNP for some time because of the rampant ‘basag kotse’ incidents in the country. But, apparently, actress Patricia Javier didn’t receive the memo.

Patricia Javier became the latest victim of ‘basag kotse’, the modus operandi wherein robbers break your car windows to take bags and other valuables they see inside.

Patricia was robbed of her bag and its contents – her wallet containing cash, her credit cards and important documents. Her diamond necklace was also in the Louis Vuitton bag.

In news interviews, Patricia Javier said she parked her Ford Everest SUV along Marcos Highway in Marikina on Sunday night while she and her companions ate at a restaurant. A ‘parking boy’ assisted her while parking and several other times when she had to move her car when other customers had to leave.

While eating, her car alarm went off but Patricia thought someone must have unintentionally triggered it because she saw two men on a motorcycle near it. But when she went to check on the car, that was when she discovered that the window was broken and her bag was missing.

“Sensitive kasi ang sasakyan ko. Akala ko nasagi lang. Tapos may nakita akong 2 lalaking nakamotor sa tabi ng sasakyan, akala ko nasagi lang nila,” Patricia told ABS CBN News.

The actress also suspects that the ‘parking boy’ had something to do with the robbery, or he must have tipped off the ‘basag kotse’ robbers.

“Yung bata, kasi the whole time nakikita ko nagga-guide,” she told GMA News. “Pakiramdam ko part ‘yun.”

Hopefully, this incident will teach Patricia Javier, and people reading this report, not to leave valuables inside their car again.
