After conducting an inventory of his game fowl, Abustan found that his cocks were missing.

Police conducted an operation in Pagbilao to arrest the suspect but he escaped. Authorities were able to recover only six cocks which were left by the suspect.

The victim identified his animals based on their breed and wing bands. /lb
