BAGUIO City --  Seven persons were collared last Friday by the Baguio City Police Office (BCPO) for loitering beyond the Enhanced Community Quarantine curfew hours, BCPO Director Police Col. Allen Rae Co announced yesterday.

Col. Co said the violators all presented flimsy reasons thus the apprehensions.

Mayor Benjie Magalong and Co reminded that the city is on 24-hour curfew while critical personnel are prohibited from the streets from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. thus, law enforcers will be more stringent in checking the purpose of people out and about in the streets during those hours.

"Those found loitering well into the curfew time will be immediately sent home and we will cause the arrest of non-complying individuals," the officials warned.

Meanwhile, the mayor ordered the police and barangays to arrest people who indulge in drinking alcohol outside their homes after numerous complaints reached him.
