Rufa Mae Quinto became the latest victim of burglary as she lost valuable properties estimated at P2 million in worth.
According to Rufa Mae, intruders entered her house inside an exclusive subdivision in Quezon City. One of the robbers proceeded to her room where she was sound asleep and quickly stashed some of her belongings.
Stolen from her were a watch worth P1.2 million, a laptop, and valuables found inside her bag.
"Ang importante I'm alive. I'm happy to be alive," said Rufa Mae to Lhar Santiago in the 24 Oras interview aired yesterday, August 29.
Rufa Mae had already reported the burglary to the authorities. She begged off, however, from divulging any information that would preempt the investigation. The number of burglars who barged inside her house remains unclear to the reporters.
"Kung ano man 'yung iniisip, 'yong abogado ko na lang at 'tsaka yung imbestigador na lang siguro ang dapat maka-alam no'n, kasi they adivised me also na ‘wag nang magsalita."
Although Rufa Mae cried the whole day after her traumatic experience, she reminds herself that she can always recoup the stolen amount, and that being alive is still the most important thing.
