LEGAZPI CITY, Philippines—An LBC Express branch in Sorsogon City lost P375,000 in cash to armed robbers Friday, the Philippine National Police said.

Chief Insp. Ayn Natuel, police spokesperson in Bicol, said at least three robbers barged into the LBC Express office in downtown Sorsogon City at around 7 a.m. Friday and declared a holdup, catching by surprise the two employees of the cargo and carrier service firm.

Natuel said two of robbers pretended to be customers and then at gunpoint declared a holdup while their companion positioned himself in front of the door as lookout.

After taking the money from the cashier, the trio boarded a blue XRM motorcycle and fled.

Police have issued an all-points-bulletin alerting other law enforcers to be on the lookout for the robbers, said Natuel.
