You can’t wear caps in malls anymore, says police

It looks like the use of brains has also been banned.

Non Alquitran of The Philippine Star reports: "According to National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) chief Director Carmelo Valmoria shoppers will now be told not to wear caps in malls to prevent robberies. "From now on, the wearing of caps would be banned in malls. Those wearing it would be advised to take it off and place or keep them inside their bags or in their pockets," he said.


The report noted: "Mall owners will display signs against the wearing of caps at entrances while security guards will strictly enforce the ban in a polite manner." Last December 15, robbers wearing caps reportedly used hammers to smash the glass display cases of SM North EDSA’s department store jewelry section. They reportedly took P5 million worth of jewelry.


Caps, the police said, made it difficult to determine what the "Martilyo Gang" members really looked like. Hence, the ban is being imposed.
