By Norman B. Tamar

CAMP BONNY SERRANO, Masbate City, June 20 (PNA) -– The LandBank branch manager of Irosin, Sorsogon, has lauded members of the San Fernando Municipal Police Station (SFMPS) for having able to recover and return his valuable personal belongings.

Cicero S. Conag lost his cell phone case containing iPhone5S, Lenovo, Landbank Visa credit card, ATM debit cards, and a necklace on May 16.

The valuable items were earlier found by an honest fish vendor, who in turn gave it to the police.

“Just as I and my family were pleased with and appreciated the honesty of Mr. Reynaldo Almojuela Cantoria, a fish vendor who found the lost case and turned it over to the police station, we are likewise very much grateful to the unconditional assistance of your men." Conag said in his letter sent to Senior Supt. Prexy D. Tanggawohn, officer-in-charge of the Masbate Provincial Police Office.

For this noble deed, Tanggawohn gave the SFMPS personnel under Senior Insp. Rodel C. Arevalo an award during the traditional Philippine National Police flag-raising ceremony here on Monday for earning the admiration of people whom they have sworn to serve and protect.

He also read Conag's letter and commended the good deed of the SFMPS policemen for the invaluable assistance rendered by bringing back the lost and found items.

"Such gesture deserves commendation and that my 'thank you' is not enough,” the letter added.

Conag also expressed his deep appreciation and gratitude to the three policemen of San Fernando involved for their prompt action resulting in the immediate recovery of his lost valuable items.

He said that while SPO1 Sebastian E. Jetajobe made entries in the police blotter, PO2 Noli G Bartolay proceeded at the pier where he lost his things to conduct verification.

PO3 Roger Alindogan Jr., when informed, also made a follow-up search and investigation.

Tanggawohn stressed that the letter is certainly heartening and hoped to inspire more policemen.

The good deed was worthy of emulation by all personnel, he added. (PNA) RMA/FGS/NBT/CBD/ssc
