32 iPhones go missing in airport

MANILA, Philippines – Airport authorities have launched an investigation into the missing 32 units of Apple iPhones brought by a courier who was en route to Davao.

Initial investigations showed that a certain Jun Pomarada, a courier of Ximex Forwarders, checked in a gray duffel bag containing the mobile phones for his Cebu Pacific flight 5J 959 bound for Davao last January 28,2012.

The phones are allegedly owned by Globe Telecom.

Pomarada was planning to handcarry his luggage but was instructed by police personnel manning the security inspection to check in the bag instead.

When Pomarada arrived in Davao, his bag went missing.

Bing Lina, manager of Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 3 was alarmed because he said he was not properly informed of the incident considering that Cebu Pacific has already sought the assistance of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI).

Lina added that he has instructed airport police to submit an update of their investigation and to coordinate with the airline and the NBI.

Cebu Pacific public relations officer Michelle de Guzman confirmed that Pomarada’s bag is indeed missing, adding that the airline is willing to help in the investigation.

Yolly Crisanto of Globe Telecom, meanwhile, has yet to confirm if the missing iPhones indeed belong to the company.
