PIA Press Release

Don't leave your homes, police warn as people troop to cemeteries this weekend

By Bong Pedalino

Maasin City (29 October) -- Let someone remain to man the house.

This was the advice the Philippine National Police (PNP) station here in the city enjoined for the general public to heed, as all roads are expected to lead to graveyards this weekend for the traditional annual rites of remembering the dead on All Saints' Day and All Souls Day, November 1 and 2, respectively.

Police Officer Michael Yepes, in-charge of the Police-civil affairs of the city station, issued the call yesterday through radio station DYDM during the Pamahaw Balita newscast anchored by Jade Nombrado.

Yepes warned that thieves may take the opportunity to get inside the seemingly abandoned homes while its occupants are in the cemeteries remembering their departed loved ones.

He advised that people schedule their visits to the cemeteries and not go there as a whole, leaving their houses as easy prey for unscrupulous persons.

Meanwhile, Police Supt. Jaime Yamba, city Police chief, said that Policemen will be deployed as usual in different cemeteries around the city to maintain peace and order, particularly at the barangay Mambajao and Mantahan cemetery, where most of the people congregate.

In an earlier interview with anchorman Monching Buyser, the city's top cop stressed that bringing sharp and deadly weapons inside the cemeteries are strictly prohibited, and that these stuffs will be confiscated once found by the authorities.

Corresponding criminal charges will be filed on those found possessing the deadly weapons, Supt. Yamba warned. (PIA-Southern Leyte) [top]
