CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY (Ben Balce / 28 Mar) Police operatives of the Philippine National Police-Traffic Management Office (PNP-TMO) in Northern Mindanao have recovered at least three luxury cars stolen in Manila, officials said Tuesday.

Superintendent Felixberto M. Castillo, TMO regional chief, said the cars -- Honda CRV, Mitsubishi L200 and Pajero -- were recovered in separate operations in Cagayan de Oro City.

"Our anti-carnapping operations are going on and so far, we have recovered three luxury vehicles, all stolen from Manila and then brought to Mindanao," he told the Zamboanga Journal.

In a report to TMO director Superintendent Errol T. Pan, he said the Honda CRV, reported stolen in Manila on April 2002, was registered to Merisant Sweetener. The car was recently recovered in Carmen village.

While the Mitsubishi L200 was recovered in Bulua village, almost 5 years after it was reported stolen in Angeles City in Luzon. The vehicle was registered to the Rizal Commercial Banking Corporation, Castillo said.

And the Pajero, registered to Pepsi Cola Inc., was stolen in Makati on May 2000 and had been recovered by TMO operatives parked in downtown area.

So far, Castillo's group have recovered 8 stolen vehicles since last year.
