NCPO’s vigilance: Battling drug menace

By Paulo DS. Papa

“We cannot ignore the fact that small-scale selling of illegal drugs persists in the city, involving small quantities like sachets,” said Police Lieutenant Colonel Dario Sola, the deputy city director for operations of the Naga City Police Office (NCPO).

Sola, during the Kape at Boses conference, warned that police authorities are still seriously pursuing their tasks of arresting individuals both involved in small-time and big-time selling of any prohibited drugs.

An update on its drive against illegal drugs revealed that early this month the NCPO has recently arrested in a buy-bust operation three persons from Cabuyao, Laguna. The suspects were apprehended at C5 in Barangay Mabolo, from whom police authorities had recovered 12 pieces of plastic sachets containing substances believed to be methamphetamine hydrochloride or shabu worth about P8-M.

On Saturday, January 13, two men from the towns of Minalabac and Pili in Camarines Sur were apprehended for selling suspected shabu at Sitio Langon in Barangay Cararayan. Four sachets of suspected shabu were confiscated with a total amount of P2,210,000.

Last Tuesday, January 16, at Almeda Highway, Barangay Concepcion Pequeña, a female from the municipality of San Fernando along with a male companion were also arrested. The operatives were able to confiscate 22 pieces of plastic sachets of suspected shabu amounting P1,020,000.

Sola said that there are more individuals who were under surveillance. These persons are allegedly in connivance with the suspects who were earlier arrested for peddling high amount of shabu in the city.

The police officer warned that it will be good for them to stop now from doing their nefarious activities.

As of this writing, the police authorities in the city already confiscated around P32-M worth of suspected shabu for the entire 2023.
