MANILA – The National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) has confiscated more than PHP5.9 billion worth of illegal drugs in police operations from Nov. 10, 2020, to Jan. 30, 2022.
Citing the latest data on Wednesday, NCRPO chief, Maj. Gen. Vicente Danao Jr. said a total of 24,684 suspects were arrested in 13,993 anti-drug operations in the region over the same period.
These operations resulted in the seizure of about 863,911.24 grams of shabu with an estimated street value of PHP5,874,596,499.14; about 585,796.78 grams of marijuana valued at PHP70,295,614; about 15,923 grams of ecstasy pills worth PHP27,069,100; and 286.13 grams of cocaine worth PHP1,516,489.
Danao emphasized the importance of this campaign in maintaining peace and order in Metro Manila and recognized the efforts of police personnel in pursuing the government’s anti-narcotics drive.
“The fight against illegal drugs is one of our focus campaigns since we have undoubtedly proven its interrelation with the peace and order of a community. Indeed, we may be far from the drug-free community that we are aiming for but with the unwavering effort of Team NCRPO, nothing is unattainable,” he said. (PNA)
