PHILIPPINE National Police chief, General Dionardo B. Carlos yesterday assured their full cooperation with Globe Telecom in going after unscrupulous persons involved in the theft of copper cables in the Visayas which greatly hampered the restoration of cellphone services in the region ravaged by typhoon ‘Odette’ in December 2021.

“We are in constant coordination with the security team of the telco company. It’s also unfortunate that some of those apprehended were minors who might have been used to swiftly execute their modus,” the top cop said.

Gen. Carlos vowed that the PNP will not turn a blind eye into these incidents as they negatively affect the delivery of service to the public.

As such, he ordered a massive search for persons involved in the illegal cutting and stealing of copper cables owned by Globe Telecom in the Visayas region

Following the onslaught of ‘Odette’ last December, Globe Telecom reported that their effort to completely restore their service and rehabilitate their facilities were terribly affected by the massive cable theft.
