The major crime reduction was recorded as Gen. Carlos ordered the implementation of a much stronger Enhanced Managing Police Operation (EMPO) programs against criminality and the Double Barrel Finale ‘Version 2021’ against illegal drugs.

“We will improve these programs as necessary and introduce further reforms as needed as we strive to make more potent tools against crime and illegal drugs,” the top cop from Philippine Military Academy ‘Maringal’ Class of 1988 said.

PNP records showed that during the 1st 100 days of Gen. Carlos, the PNP’s sustained operations against illegal drugs resulted in the neutralization of 14,792 illegal drug personalities, of which 14,102 were arrested, 28 died in gunbattles with undercover officers; and 661 surrendered.

Those anti-narcotics operations likewise resulted in the confiscation of more than P995 million worth of illegal drugs.

Most notable among these accomplishments were the seizure of P68 million worth of shabu, the arrest of three suspects and the rescue of a minor being used as an accomplice by the suspects during a buy-bust operation in Laguna.

The PNP’s major anti-narcotics accomplishments were scored by the PNP Drug Enforcement Group formerly headed by Brigadier Gen. Remus B. Medina and now, Brig. Randy Q. Peralta in coordination with the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) and other local PNP territorial units.

On Tuesday last week, a PNP-DEG-led anti-drug operation in Muntinlupa City resulted in the arrest of four ‘high-value targets’ in Metro Manila after they conspired to sell a kilo of shabu worth P6.8 million to an undercover officer, Brig. Gen. Peralta said.

The suspects were identified as Jhonray Barendse,31; Joselito Estay,52; Emely Subrado,48; and Marcel Alawia,36.

“We have received information that the four are employees/trusted persons of a Chinese drug personality now serving time at the New Bilibid Prisons in Muntinlupa City. They are known to be engaged in large-scale distribution of shabu in some parts of the country,” Brig. Gen. Peralta said.

The official said they still conducting follow-up investigation on the main source of the drugs confiscated from the two.

According to Brig. Gen. Peralta, the four were arrested during a by-bust operation conducted by members of the PNP-DEG National Capital Region Special Operations Unit along the national road in Bgy. Poblacion 10 p.m. last March 1.

Recovered from the suspects were a kilo of the so-called ‘poor man’s cocaine’ valued at P6.8 million, 14 bundles of the buy-bust money topped by two marked P1,000 bills, four mobile phones and assorted identified cards and documents.

The official said his men also impounded a gray Hyundai Grace with plate no. XDG-955 used by the suspects to transport the drugs.

All four are now being held at the PNP-DEG headquarters in Camp Crame where charges for sale and possession of prohibited drugs under Republic Act 9165 or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002 are being readied against them.

The act is a non-bailable offense punishable by life imprisonment and a maximum fine of P10 million.

The other Sunday, two PNP-DEG operations resulted in the killing of a big-time Nigerian drug trafficker and the arrest of three other ‘high-value targets’ as well as the seizure of nearly P15 million worth of shabu.

The West African national identified as Ejiofor Elendu Smart was killed in a gunbattle with officers from the DEG Intelligence and Foreign Liaison Division and their National Capital Region Special Operations (NCRPO) Unit along Batasan-San Mateo Road in Barangay Batasan Hills in Q.C. 11 p.m. Sunday.

Recovered from the possession of the slain foreigner were two kilograms of the so-called ‘poor man’s cocaine’ worth P13.6 million, the boodle money topped by some marked bills, a chamber loaded caliber .45 pistol with a magazine containing some live ammunition, a brown wallet containing assorted IDs and a mobile phone he used in making the illegal drug transaction with a poseur.

Brig. Gen. Peralta said the other buy-bust operation in Bgy. Datu Esmael, Dasmariñas City, Cavite resulted in the arrest of three ‘HVTs’ identified as Alinader Mamocarao Alikan,36; Leo Dichosa Bacay,41; and Jamal Alonto Imam,30.

Two Fridays ago, another PNP-DEG sting in Zamboanga City resulted in the killing of an ‘HVT’ following a shootout with undercover officers.

Brig. Gen. Peralta said that suspect Puriti Taraji alias’ Bossing’ managed to shoot an operative of the DEG Special Operations Unit 9 identified as Patrolman Ronevil Batal before he was killed.

The suspect, a resident of Bgy. Laum in Maimbung, Sulu had just sold four kilograms of shabu worth P27 million to a poseur in Bgy. Maasin, Zamboanga City when he sensed the ongoing entrapment operation and fired shots at the anti-narcotics officers hitting Batal.

Brig. Gen. Peralta said other members of the team returned fire killing the suspect on the spot. Pat. Batal was declared in a stable condition in a local hospital where he was visited and given a Wounded Personnel Medal and financial assistance by Peralta.

Recovered from the possession of the slain suspect were a chamber-loaded caliber 9mm semi-automatic pistol with several live ammunition, four plastic packets containing around four kilos of shabu and the buy-bust money topped by a marked P1,000 bill.
