by Jemin B. Guillermo

Roxas City (29 July) -- A composite team has been organized to track down the rising robbery and carnapping incidents in Capiz.

Capiz Police Provincial Office Information Officer Donna Asmod disclosed that with the increasing number of robbery and carnapping incidents here, PNP Provincial director has ordered the creation of "Task Group Pag-ulikid."

She said that part of the activities of said Task Group is the conduct of series of checkpoint operations in the streets and highways of Roxas City including the different towns in Capiz.

On the other hand, Angan has reminded the public to cooperate and support the police efforts and be vigilant to track down the carnapping incidents here.
