PSrSupt. Julius Munez, told the BICOL STANDARD that he received a call from the bank manager regarding the said bag, which appears to contain suspicious contents, which was why he ordered that the place be immediately secured.

“When the bomb sniffing dog reached the place, it immediately sat upon the bag,”  Muñez said.

“That is reason why the bag was wrapped and placed in a bullet mat container  to be sure that nobody gets injured, in case it explodes,” he added.

The reports say that at around 8:10 a.m. a woman went to the ATM machine of the bank to withdraw money. But she had noticed that a bag was on the floor, and nobody seems to be attending to it, according to the investigator.

Meanwhile, at 11:30 a.m. today, Munez said that the bag contains personal items belonging to a woman whose identity is still unknown.
