ABS-CBNNews.com reports that "two people may face charges for pilfering money from a parcel at the government’s Central Mail Exchange Center (CMEC) in Pasay City."

 

The report discussed a closed circuit television (CCTV) footage showing a woman, later identified as Postman 1 Lovelyn de Leon, opened a package and retrieved a white envelope containing foreign currency from the back of a cellphone. A man, later identified as identified as Customs Examiner Omar Said, was also caught on video with de Leon.

According to the report, De Leon and Said may have thought that the CCTV camera placed in their area wasn’t working. Hence, their seemingly brazen move.

 

Upon viewing the CCTV footage, Postmaster General Josie dela Cruz theorized: "Mukhang magkasabwat sila. ’Yung taga-Customs ’yung nagtuturo kung alin yung bubuksan. Nakita rin natin sa CCTV na hindi naman niya hinalukay 'yung kahon eh. Alam niya kaagad na ’yung cellphone ang bubuksan niya. Alam niya rin kaagad na mayroong nandoon sa cellphone."

 

Authorities say that De Leon and Said "are in clear violation of regulations of the Bureau of Customs (BOC) and the Philippine Postal Corporation." The opening of parcels is prohibited unless the owners or addressees are present.

 

The postmaster general said that further investigation will be conducted to identify if there are syndicates involved in the matter. Meanwhile, De Leon and Said have refused to talk to the media.
