A mysterious woman who was seen wandering in Taguig City caused alarm after officials at Bagumbayan saw her on Tuesday carrying a bag full of money, coins and foreign currencies tied in the stroller.
According to barangay health officials, she looks untidy and was seen since Saturday roaming around the vicinity of Taguig.
The woman was identified through her old barangay ID as a certain Carmelita Bernasor of Malibay, Pasay.
The money found in her possession amounted to P74,000.00 which Bernasor said she plans to deposit in the bank. The money comes in 50, 100, 500 and 1,000 peso bills and wrapped with rubber band.
According to her, the five peso and ten peso coins were taken from her piggy bank.
Furthermore, she claimed that the money found in her belongings were part of her savings when she was still a balut, ice candy, bread and snacks vendor.
“Ano po ito biniyak kong alkansiya…sa lata…barya po…limang piso, sampung piso,” she said. “Nagtinda-tinda po ako ng balot, ice candy, softdrink, tinapay, meryenda.”
Other particulars which she claimed were hers consists of pairs of earring, lighters and cellphone.
The barangay worker recounts that she gave the vagrant woman a bath and later opened her bag to look for a dress that Bernasor could wear. However, to the health worker’s surprise, she found bundles of money and other valuables in a pillow case inside her bag instead of clothes.
Reports of DZMM said that Bernasor changes her statements and can’t be properly talked to. Her house was demolished making her wander since then.
As conversation progressed, she mentioned one Virgilio Bernasor which she said was an unfound relative.
A barangay health worker named Remedios Tenorio decided to bring her inside the barangay hall to keep her safe.
The Department of Social Welfare and Development representatives in the municipal level later brought the woman at the Taguig City hall.
