    In a recent press release, the Carmona City Police, under the leadership of Chief of Police PLTCOL Jefferson P. Ison, addressed a viral social media post concerning an incident at Waltermart Carmona.

    The police reviewed CCTV footage from March 27, 2024, which showed an elderly woman seeking assistance at an ATM.
