5 minors held for burning schoolbuilding in Cam Sur

SIRUMA, Camarines Sur November 16, 2016 (Bicol Standard) – Five minors who are all residents of Barangay Tandoc are now in custody of the Municipal Social Welfare Office (MSWO) here, after allegedly starting a fire that razed a public school library and partially destroyed two other classrooms.


In an interview by BICOL STANDARD, FO3 Ricky Rebuya, the Fire Prevention Officer of the town, said that the 5 suspects, who are all minors were turned over to the MSWD.

Rebuya confirmed that the unnamed suspects admitted that they were responsible for torching the said public buildings, upon learning that one of them was not allowed to graduate high school due to a failing grade.

He also added that the original intention of the five members of the group was to enter the Principal’s Office, where the student’s diplomas are being kept.

“We tried to enter the principal’s office, but it was locked. Hence, we proceeded to destroy other parts of the building," said one of the members of the group.

"It was our initial intention to open the office of Mrs. Teresita Lopez, the school principal," he added.

They set on fire the room which was being used as the school library.

Meanwhile, the MSWD personnel said that they will refer the matter to the DSWD regional office, since they do not have facilities where the said minors would be accommodated, pending investigation of this incident.

As this developed, SFO1 Francia Saavedra said that based on their investigation the total damage caused by the fire was more or less P500,000.00.

The incident was reported at around 1:00 a.m. Monday.

In a separate report, it was learned from the police investigators that Tandoc has the highest number of drug addiction cases, based on intel reports.

The suspects in the said case also admitted that they were under the influence of liquor when the incident occurred.
