12 drug suspects nabbed; P492-K in drugs seized by DCPO


TWELVE suspects fell in a series of successful anti-illegal drug operations by the Davao City Police Office (DCPO) over the weekend.

DCPO chief Col. Richard Bad-ang commended his team’s efforts and highlighted the importance of community support in combating illegal drugs.

“The DCPO has consistently exerted its utmost effort in combating illegal drugs,” Col. Bad-ang said. “These recent apprehensions are a testament to our dedication, bolstered by the unwavering support of the Davaoeños,” he said.

The operations, conducted between May 11 and 12, targeted various areas across Davao City.

For instance, the Sta. Ana Police Station confiscated shabu worth an estimated P13,192; San Pedro Police Station seized shabu with an estimated value of P5,168; and the Sasa Police Station confiscated shabu valued at P205,020.

Meanwhile, the Calinan Police Station confiscated marijuana leaves with an estimated value of P532; the Mandug Police Station seized shabu worth an estimated P4,080; the Eden Police Station apprehended suspects and confiscated shabu valued at P4,896; the Los Amigos Police Station seized shabu with an estimated value of P35,999.20.

The total estimated value of confiscated shabu from the four police stations reached P268,888.

Col. Bad-ang emphasized the crucial role of community engagement in achieving these results.

“The success of these operations wouldn’t be possible without the invaluable help of the community,” he stated.  “We are grateful for the collaboration with the local government of Davao and its barangay officials,” he said.

He highlighted the “Pulis sa Barangay” program as a key factor in fostering this collaboration. This program fosters a direct connection between police officers and residents, allowing for efficient response to public concerns.

“We believe that by working together as a united community, we can create a peaceful and orderly Davao City free from harmful substances,” Bad-ang concluded.
