WV records zero stray bullet cases for Christmas 2017; Takot na mga mayabang!
With less than a week to go before New Year, police in Roxas City, Capiz seized several illegal firecrackers from kiosks along Altavas Street in Barangay 8.
The confiscations were part of the police’s “Iwas Paputok” campaign, Roxas City police head Superintendent Dante Tayco said.
“Inspection and monitoring activities of illegal firecrackers in the different municipalities are also ongoing,” he added.
Seized by the team led by PO1 Jed Arcenas of the Firearms and Explosives, Security and Guards Supervision were:
– sky rockets (kwitis)
– whistle bombs
– three boxes of piccolo
– 11 boxes of ‘pop pop’
A team led by SPO2 Ricardo Montaño seized 140 boxes of sand blasting “Pop Pop” from licensed retailers also along Altavas Street.
Presently, Tayco said the city police led by FESAGS are holding daily patrols, acting on reports from concerned citizens.
Capiz police head Senior Superintendent Samuel Nacion earlier ordered local chiefs of police to intensify their information campaign on “Iwas Paputok.”
He said this could be through “rekorida” or public announcements and police operations against violators of laws regulating firecrackers.
