MARIO PANGOHO GUEVARRA
29 years old, 5'3", 130 lbs, single of 14 Lower Bicutan, Taguig, Metro Manila

Guard LEONARDO C SANTOS accosted "Mario P. Guevarra" inside the AMPC canteen early this afternoon to ask for his ID.  The suspect bolted away from the guard rather than identify himself.  Guard Santos called for assistance and together with Guard ROLANDO V BULA (assigned at the Gonzaga parking entrance) pursued and apprehended the suspect inside Quad 1.  At the security office, the suspect was identified as the thief apprehended on campus on 25 August 1995, 13 March 1996, and 25 April 2000. 

Mr. Guevarra had with him a black leather envelope containing exam plates, receipts, UP Form 5, and other documents belonging to Ronald Rae M. Yu, a UP freshman.  Mr. Guevarra admitted stealing the leather envelope from a backpack between 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. at the CASAA dining place, UP Diliman.  He also admitted to disposing of the backpack containing books and notebooks at Palma Hall, UP.  The owner of the stolen items was notified of the recovery of his things.  The UP freshman came to retrieve his things but on the advice of his father refused to file charges.

Mr. Guevarra was first apprehended on campus on 25 August 1995 after he was caught in the act of opening students' bags inside Rizal Library.  At the time, he managed to enter Rizal Library by using a stolen student ID with his picture superimposed (please see left ID in the next page).  Although he had stolen items in his possession, i.e., books, notes, jacket, and a cellular phone, none of the victims was willing to press charges and security had to release him.  He was banned from campus.

On 13 March, 1996 he was again caught on campus, although nothing stolen was found in his possession.  Campus security counseled him to mend his ways and released him.  On 25 April 2000, Mr. Guevarra was again apprehended on campus with another stolen student ID with his picture superimposed and the ID laminated (please see right ID below).  The owner of the ID claimed to have lost his ID the month before.  Pictures belonging to students who had lost their wallets in the College Covered Courts the previous semester were also found in his wallet.  Again, no victim was willing to press charges against Mr. Guevarra.  Campus security had no choice but to again release Mr. Guevarra.  The pictures of Mr. Guevarra taken on 25 August 1995, 13 March 1996, and 25 April 2000 are shown below.

Mr. Guevarra claimed that he was jailed for a few months in 1995 at the Quezon City Jail.  He was again jailed in 2000 after he was caught shoplifting in Anson, Quezon City and was just released 13 September 2002.  This information is unconfirmed.

Since no charges could be filed against Mr. Guevarra, he was released after he was introduced to forty-five day shift and thirty-six night shift guards.  The guards tried to convince Mr. Guevarra to mend his ways and lead an honest life.  

The use of the school ID on campus has been most effective in screening intruders.  Last week three intruders were apprehended and kept out of campus.  Thiefs apprehended generally do not carry any valid ID except those they have stolen.
