‘Oil spill helped in decline of criminality’

By Ruby P. Silubrico

POLICE Regional Director Geary Barias said Tuesday that despite the damage caused by the oil spill in some areas of Guimaras, it helped in the decline of criminality in the area.

“No petty crimes have been noticed since the start of the oil spill. Guimaras is really a peaceful place,” Barias said.

He added that because of the immediate response of Petron Corp. and local government units with the “Food for Work” program, the residents, including teens and bystanders, are kept busy.

“Instead of having a drinking session during their free time, they are in seashore to work and earn money and it really help our bystanders,” Barias added.
