SAN ILDEFONSO, Bulacan—Three construction workers were believed killed over a series of electrical wire theft incidents by still unknown suspects in this town on Saturday. 

Bulacan police director Col. Relly Arnedo identified the victims as Jeric Torres, 24, from Calumpit town;  Robin De Guzman, 21 from Barangay Calasag, San Ildefonso town and William Diaz, 35, a native of Mercedes, Camarines Norte, and presently residing in Pulilan town. 

San Ildefonso police received a telephone call report from a councilman in Barangay Basuit of a shooting incident that transpired in their place at around 6:10 a.m. 

The three victims were found dead with bullet wounds in different parts of their bodies inside a parked tricycle in a farm area in the said barangay. The tricycle was loaded with rolls of used electrical wires.

Col. Russell Dennis Reburiano, San Ildefonso police chief said the victims were being tagged behind the series of electrical wire theft in the vast farm areas in Basuit.
