A LENDING firm in Toledo City lost P20,000 in cash and a cellphone after a burglar managed to enter its office on Thursday in Barangay Sangi, Toledo City.

Fast Cash Finance Co. Inc. said the burglar entered by destroying the padlock on the office door at the T.E. Building and took the money placed in a box inside the office, said SPO3 Carlos Barluado of the Toledo Police Station.
