Cayetano branded the robbery incident as “deplorable” even saying that it will not be tolerated. He asked the chief of the Taguig City Police to clean their ranks and reorganize the force.

“The City condemns all acts of violence, illegal drugs, and corruption and it will not tolerate any employee who is involved in any form of crime. Let this serve as a very strong warning to bad elements who prey on innocent civilians. In Taguig, regardless of who you are, you will be punished to the fullest extent of the law,” the local chief executive said.

The city government likewise lauded the members of the Pasig and Makati police for their efforts which resulted in the arrest of the Taguig City police officers.
