Dinalupihan Mayor Gila Garcia channeled her inner femme fatale this morning by leading the symbolic destruction of defective weighing scales.

Garcia drove a road roller in front of the municipal hall and destroyed 101 confiscated weighing scales from various commercial establishments in this town in Bataan before government employees and members of the media.

The mayor said she crushed the weighing scales to serve as stern warning to others.

“This is a clear message to the public that we want to protect the welfare of the consumers and this will serve as warning to others,” Garcia said.

The destruction of the scales was supported by local businessmen and the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI).

Aside from the destruction of questionable weighing scales, the DTI said the owners will be reprimanded and if they continue, their licenses will be revoked.
