THE Cebu City Police arrested 112 personalities in their 40th weekly Oplan Pokemon operation.
City Intelligence Branch (CIB) head, Chief Insp. Cristopher Navida, said that they noted a decrease in the confiscation of illegal drugs.
“This is a positive indication that we are successful in cutting their supply of illegal drugs,” Navida said.
With the confiscation of the 1.2 kilos of “unfinished” shabu last week, Navida said that they also tried to track down the source of the brownish drugs.
“We tried to look at the area of Barangay Labangon where the drugs may have been cooked but it turned out negative. There are no drug laboratories in Cebu City,” Navida said.
He reiterated that the coordination of the city police and the communities led to most of the operation where huge quantities of drugs were seized.
Shabu together with 315 stalks of marijuana with a Dangerous Drugs Board (DDB) value of P962, 980 was confiscated from 66 drug personalities.
Operatives also rescued 19 minors and arrested seven street-level pushers and four drug surrenderers. (JOB)
