During the operations, authorities confiscated more than 74 grams of shabu and 34 grams of marijuana.

The  PNP also visited 170 houses in their  “Oplan Tokhang”  (Toktok-Hangyo), of which 179  surrendered to authorities.

Of the 179 surrendered, 62 admitted using shabu while 117 confessed they are either courier or  peddler.

Chief Supt. Marcelo Morales, PRO 12 regional director, said they will continue to operate in the hope of minimizing of not totally eradicating illegal drugs problem in his area of responsibility.

Morales advised drug personalities and their peddlers to surrender peacefully rather than putting up a fight with authorities.-Ramil H. Bajo/Newsline.ph
