Mayor Benjamin Magalong warned the public to ensure safety of belongings and households after receiving a report that one household was forcibly entered by thieves during the observance of Lent.

“Heads up ko lang po na nagkalat mga kawatan ngayong Holy Week, niloob po bahay namin,” read the message received by the mayor.

Personnel from Baguio City Police Station 10 responded swiftly to their distress call and two individuals were collared, profiled following standard procedures, and were identified as non-residents of Baguio City.

The BCPO deployed more than 1,100 law enforcers, volunteers and force multipliers to secure both residents and tourists during the Summer Vacation (SumVac) in Baguio activities that will run up to the end of May this year.

Deployment started during the Holy Week break and during the various activities that had been lined up by the city government and the private sector for this year’s SumVac.

For safety and security, the BCPO is reminding the public to avoid posting their whereabouts real-time since social media posts may also be used by burglars when attacking homes.

The BCPO also advised the public to secure their belongings such as wallets, cell phones including jewelry when in public places.– Jessa Mardy P. Samidan
