·1 min read

THE Cebu City Police Office (CCPO) will deploy its personnel back to IT Park in Barangay Lahug following the increase in the number of snatching cases in the area.

Police Lieutenant Colonel Wilbert Parilla, deputy city director for administration of the CCPO, said the 400 policemen who were earlier assigned to secure the May 9 elections are back to their regular assignments.

Parilla’s statement came after a video showing a snatcher victimizing a man in IT Park went viral on social media.

The snatcher was caught on video pocketing something from the man’s bag.

Reports said a number of call center employees working in IT Park have fallen victim to snatchers.

Parilla said they will also assign patrol cars that will conduct roving and inspection in the area. (AYB)
