This robbery gang has to rethink its name.

“Police have arrested James Yayak, 44 and Randy Pelking, 37, who are suspected members of the Acetylene Gang during a raid at the group’s hideout at El Pacifico Pension Hill in Sta. Cruz, Manila on Monday, Jan 6,” reports Dennis Carcamo on Philstar.com.

According to the police, Yayakl and Pelking are “active members of the Acetylene Gang who are responsible for a series of pawnshop robberies all over the country. The report revealed that “during the arrest, policemen seized from the suspects six pieces of gold rings, four pawn tickets from various pawnshops, small weighing scale and acetylene torch.”

The suspects will be turned over to Police Regional Office Cordillera.
