TACLOBAN CITY Leyte -- A house left unguarded is a prime target for break-ins and thefts, the Police Community Relations Office 8 said as it warned the public to take precautionary precautions when leaving their houses unattended during the Halloween.

Families must schedule their visits to the cemeteries and not go there altogether, leaving their houses easy prey for unscrupulous persons.

Thieves may take the opportunity to get inside the seemingly abandoned homes while its occupants are in the cemeteries paying respect to their departed loved ones.

To preclude the possibility of criminal elements taking advantage of unattended residences, homeowners must coordinate with barangay or neighborhood authorities for special security arrangements.
