NO looting, burglary or theft has been reported on Saipan in the aftermath of Typhoon Yutu, Department of Public Safety Commissioner Robert Guerrero said.
He said a lot of police officers have been deployed to the villages to prevent criminal activities that may occur following a natural disaster.
“We have more patrols in the evening, too, to deter crime,” Guerrero added. “Right now our main focus is public safety.”
He also said the CNMI law enforcers on island and their federal counterparts are securing wells, distribution points and other critical sites.
Because traffic lights are not fully operational, he is requesting motorists to drive safely.
“Our biggest concern right now is helping the island recover from the supertyphoon,” he added.
