From basag-kotse groups, local police authorities are now faced to solve another headache: the resurgence of Acetylene Gang.
Yesterday morning, members of the Acetylene Gang made known of their presence by attacking a pawnshop along E. Lopez St., Brgy. Fatima, Jaro, Iloilo City.
Incidentally, the pawnshop is owned by no less than Rosalie Sarabia-Treñas, the wife of Iloilo City Mayor Jerry Treñas.
Residents who lost their houses in a fire recently in Brgy. Nabitasan, La Paz could still go back and rebuild their houses.
This was assured by Iloilo City Mayor Jerry Treñas after no concrete decision was made by the Department of Education (DepEd), owner of the property where the burned houses stand, regarding the matter.
