THE Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) in Bacolod City has issued a warning to sellers of face shields not to engage in overpricing.
CIDG-Bacolod head, Police Chief Master Sargeant Ramiro Gocotano, said they have received reports that someone had been hoarding face shields and hiding it in a warehouse.
The warning is effective Saturday, August 15, as all passengers are now required to wear face shields and face masks whenever they commute in public utility vehicles.
Gocotano said they are still validating the information, although he noted an individual is planning to sell the face shields at highly inflated prices.
The local CIDG chief said sellers of face shields must not exceed the suggested retail price of P26 to P50.
