The persons who were caught having pot session were Crusito Matugas Toring, John Nino Enriquez Dungog, Michael Castro Manzo and Mark Casona Pasana.
Danao City Police Chief Gerard Ace Pelare said the suspects are all newly identified personalities.
Operatives seized 44 packs of white crystals believed to be methamphetamine hydrochloride, locally known as "shabu." The contraband is worth P201,190, a Dangerous Drugs Board estimate.
The operations happened in Taboc, Looc; Rotonda, Looc; Taboc Camaligbato; and Tuburan Sur from 3:06 a.m. until 7:25 a.m.
Aside from the shabu, the City Drug Enforcement Unit-led operatives also confiscated P2,450 in cash believed to be proceeds of illegal activities and drug paraphernalia.
Suspects will be charged for violating the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002, which prohibits the use and sale of shabu. (KAL)
