Nakulimbat ng pinagsanib na pwersa ng Regional Intelligence Division ng National Capital Region Police Office, Highway Patrol Group, Laloma Police Station, at Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) ang 217 kilo ng marijuana bricks na nagkakahalagang PhP26-milyon noong Nobyembre 29, sa Balintawak, Quezon City (QC).

Timbog sina Dianne Cambalicer, 37, businesswoman; Louie Cuerdo, 29, driver; at isang “Angelo” sa buy-bust operation sa EDSA Brgy. Apolonio Samson Balintawak, QC ng 7:00 a.m. noong Linggo.

Ito na ang pinakamalaking huli ng isang drug buy-bust sa ilalim ng pinakabagong Philippine National Police (PNP) Chief Debold M. Sinas.

“The PNP has relentlessly pledged to come to terms with the President’s campaign program to eradicate illegal drugs with our almost daily accomplishments of major significance in this regard. The success in this endeavor would not have been achieved without the stronger cooperation between PNP units and the PDEA to seriously hit the use and selling of illegal drugs in the country”, pahayag ng PNP Chief.

Pinapapurihan ng hepe ng pulisya ang mga operatiba sa pagsisikap ng mga itong pababain ang suplay ng ilegal na droga lalo na sa darating na holiday season.

“We encourage our law-abiding citizens to be vigilant in watching over the ‘new normal’ operations of illegal drug syndicates as the PNP will further intensify hunting the high-value targets so that we could prevent them from destroying the lives and future of our children,” dagdag pa ni Chief PNP.
