But 2 days later the thief was caught in front of our door because he was steeling a bike!
Our neigbor recognized him as the person that went to our appartment early in the morning.
At the baranguay he even confessed to be the one that got our valuables.
After days of visiting the police we were told that they would not help us because we did not report the theft within 24 hours. They just let him go!
QUESTION: is it true that one needs to report a crime within 24 hours? Counting from what moment?
Because our place was once again robbed while sleeping in the early morning.. Feeling very unsafe now. Please help!
