MANILA, Philippines —A document circulating on social media regarding the vehicles carrying alleged improvised explosive devices or IEDs is legitimate.
“The memo came from the Maritime Police Station in Dapitan City,” said PNP Maritime Group chief PCSupt. Loy Morales.
However, Morales said the contents of the documents are still under verification and validation.
This is why, Morales noted the police did not issue a warning about the alleged bomb-carrying vehicles, adding that the document has also no security classification.
The police official has explained the leaked memo was intended only for shipping line managers in Dapitan City.
“He just heard the plate numbers indicated there from other people. Then he gathered and he created a report and shared it to operations managers of shipping lines … the intention is to share it for intended uses. So he/she is asking for assistance to validate the contents,” Morales added.
The PNP Maritime Group claims to have not seen the vehicle cited in the said memo since the document. Despite this, the Maritime Group says it is currently coordinating with the LTO and HPG regarding the matter.
It also urges the owners of the vehicles cited in the memo to immediately come forward to the Dapitan PNP Maritime Group.
The owners are also encouraged to file complaints if the issue put them in the bad light.
Morales said his team is now determining how the memo was leaked, which is supposed to be for internal use only.
“I talked to him and told him that he should be careful in the disclosure of information. And that he/she should follow the SOP of the PNP in releasing information,” Morales said.
The PNP Maritime Group allays public’s fears over the leaked information, saying the police are on standby all the time at ports across the country. – Grace Casin | UNTV News and Rescue

The Philippine National Police have arrested over 108 suspects in a series of anti-criminality operations (SACO) in Rizal Province.
Alleged offenders were arrested for cases of frustrated murder, homicide, physical injury, robbery, theft and car napping.
Thirty-nine of the suspects are on the wanted list; six of whom are among PNP’s most wanted persons; and two were killed in Antipolo City.
PNP Rizal Acting Provincial Director PSSupt. Lou Frias Evangelista said, “Nung nakita po nila yung ating kapulisan na parating na ay pinutukan po sila. Syempre gumanti po yung ating kapulisan. At sa kasamaang palad ay naneutralize po nila yung dalawang tao na tungkol sa search warrant.”
(The suspects open fired when they saw the police approaching. The police retaliated of course and unfortunately killed two of the warrant’s subjects.)
Police confiscated from the arrested personalities seven loose firearms which include hand guns, shotguns and a hand grenade. They also found 237 sachets of suspected shabu and four sachets of suspected marijuana.
The Rizal Crime Laboratory Office is currently processing the evidence for presentation at the Rizal Prosecutors Office. — Jennica Cruz | UNTV News & Rescue
