PNP scores victory in buy-bust operation

by Margie L. Gadian

SAN JOSE, Antique, Jan. 13 (PIA) -- The Antique Police Provincial Office Anti-Illegal Drugs Special Operation Task Group (PAIDSOTG) and the San Jose Police Station nabbed an alleged drug pusher in a buy-bust operation.

Two sachets of suspected shabu, marijuana and marked money were found in the possession of a 22-year-old male in one of the barangays in San Jose.

Senior Supt Ruperto T. Floro Jr, Police Director of APPO said the operation was the first accomplishment of the command for 2012 in the campaign against illegal drugs.

Floro commended his men for their dedication in the anti-drug campaign. He assured that they will double their efforts in apprehending drug pushers in the province.

The provincial officials are supportive of the campaign against illegal drugs. A financial aid has been set aside to assist the Philippine National Police (PNP) in its efforts and continuous information drive, not only in schools but more so in the barangays.

The Antique Police Provincial Office (APPO) is persistent in its campaign to clear the province of illegal drugs according to the PNP.

The APPO conducted surveillance and buy-bust operations of suspected persons and places to nip in the bud operations and proliferation of the prohibited drugs.

The PNP heightened its watch on transportations facilities like the Roll On, Roll Off (RORO), which allegedly contributes to easy transport of prohibited drugs.
