Authorities recovered only light items like fork, kitchen knife, needle and thread, and other pointed objects.
One traveler however, was questioned for having bullets of M16 rifle in his possession.
“As of this time wala tayong na report nationwide na any untoward incident except dito lang na may nakuhang mangilan ngilan na bala kaninang umaga …. nasa station siya at he is being investigated at tinitingnan nagin kung totoo ang kanyang alibi na napulot niya lang yun,” Albayalde said.
He checked on provincial buses and reminded drivers to observe safe driving while he advised travelers to secure their houses before leaving.
Also, the PNP Chief visited the Manila North cemetery where 500 cops are strategically stationed.

MANILA, Philippines – Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Police General Oscar Albayalde on Friday said that Chinese-dominated Philippine Offshore Gaming Operators (POGO) hubs near police and military installations so far do not pose threat to the country’s security.
Albayalde told reporters in an interview at Camp Bagong Diwa in Taguig City that foreign businesses usually consider setting up office near a police or military camp for security purposes.
“Ang pinaka-common action ng mga ‘yan ay to find a place nearest to a police station o nearest to a police camp for security reason sa kanila din,” he said.
Some POGO hubs are located near the headquarters of the Philippine Army in Taguig, the Philippine Air force in Pasay and the Philippine Navy in Manila. Other online gaming hubs are located near the headquarters of the PNP and Armed Forces of the Philippines in Quezon City.
“Kung ikaw ay negosyante, kung ikaw ay merong pwesto or facility na malapit doon sa police station o sa kampo you are already safe,” he said.
