MANILA -- Malacañang assured the public on Thursday that the government will take the needed measures to neutralize a Mexican drug cartel, which has made its presence felt in the Philippines.

Presidential Communications Operations Office Secretary Herminio Coloma Jr. said authorities have a duty to arrest lawbreakers and protect the public.

"Siyempre po pag-iibayuhin ang pagsisikap na masabat o mahuli ang mga lumalabag sa batas, itigil ang kanilang krimen, at pangalagaan ang kapakanan ng mga mamamayan (Of course, the government will seek to arrest these lawbreakers, stop their crimes, and protect the citizenry)," he said at a media briefing.

Earlier Thursday, the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) said the dreaded Sinoloa drug syndicate has made its way to the Philippines.

PDEA head Arturo Cacdac Jr. said this following a raid in Batangas that netted 84 kilos of methamphetamine hydrochloride (shabu) worth P420 million. (PNA)
