16 Taguig quarantine violators nabbed via Facebook report

A total of 16 persons were arrested in Taguig City for violating quarantine protocols last September 12 with the help of concerned netizens, Joint Task Force Covid Shield commander Lt. Gen. Guillermo Eleazar said Tuesday.

In a statement, Eleazar said the arrest was made possible due to the timely report of a concerned netizen who provided the photos of the then ongoing violation to the Covid Shield Facebook page.

All individuals were drinking at a birthday celebration on Aguirre Street, Barangay Lower Bicutan when they were nabbed by operatives of the Taguig Police's Hagonoy Sub-Station 9.

All those accosted were taken to the basketball court of the barangay which serves as a holding area for quarantine violators and were released after six hours.

Despite their release, Eleazar said these individuals will be charged with the violation of Taguig City Ordinance Number 27-89 (Drinking in Public Places) and violation of Article 151 of the Revised Penal Code (Resistance and Disobedience to a Person in Authority).

He added the operation in Taguig was the first quarantine violation-related police operation since the JTF Covid Shield activated a Facebook page on September 11.

Taguig City Mayor Lino Cayetano released his statement on Tuesday regarding the matter. He congratulate the JTF Covid-19 Shield for doing a good job in handling the case.
