P2-M worth of smuggled cigarettes seized by cops

OVER P2 million worth of smuggled cigarettes were seized by the Police Regional Office (PRO) XI in Mabini, Davao de Oro, and Purok Malinawon, Barangay Mogbongcogon, Banaybanay, Davao Oriental, on Aug. 8.

PRO XI director Brig Gen Alden Delvo said the Banay-Banay Police Station under the Davao Oriental Police Provincial Office confiscated smuggled assorted cigarettes placed in 45 boxes worth P2,250,000.

Delvo said the successful confiscation of smuggled cigarettes was attributed to the coordination of Banaybanay PS and Regional Special Operating Group (RSOG) XI.

The operatives conducted a joint buy-bust operation in the area of Mabini, Davao de Oro, before proceeding to Purok Malinawon, where they found the abandoned master cases of smuggled cigarettes.

Delvo lauded the operating group and ensured that PRO XI will continuously conduct operations against smuggling and all other illegal activities to ensure a safe and orderly Davao Region.
