Darating ang panahon na mauubos din natin itong mga imbolbado sa illegal na droga kung patuloy tayong nagtutulungan at pinapalakas ang ating pagsanib puwersa," Wanky said.

(To our countrymen, thank you very much for the information you are providing to your police. You can rest assured that we will continue to act on your complaints. The time will come when we will also exhaust these people involved in illegal drugs if we continue to work together and strengthen our joint forces.) (Leo Solinap/SunStar Philippines)
