Amid the celebration and hype for the start of the Rio Olympics, Filipino writer and news anchor Lia Cruz revealed last night that thieves entered their hotel rooms in Copacabana, Brazil and stole their money.
In a series of tweets, Lia says that someone broke into their rooms in the official media village despite having biometric locks . But they weren’t the only victims as cameras of a French media crew also got stolen while shooting in the area.
Thieves got into mine and @magoomarjon‘s rooms here in Rio and stole CASH. Worst part is, we’re staying in the official media village.
Lia says they already filed a report to the police, but there’s no news if the culprit was already found. Nonetheless, Lia kept it positive and posted photos on Instagram to show the beauty of the Copacabana beach.
