FOUR more wanted drug personalities in the country have been accounted for by the Philippine National Police Drug Enforcement Group (PNP-DEG) in separate manhunt operations in the country this week, the Journal Group learned on Friday.

Three of the accused have already been ordered to serve their jail terms by the court while the 4th is facing a non-bailable case for violation of Republic Act 9165 or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002, said PNP-DEG director, Brigadier General Narciso D. Domingo.

“This is part of our ongoing efforts to account for all wanted drug personalities in the country to prevent them from continuing their illegal drug activities while still at-large, said the PNP-DEG director.

The official said that 46-year-old Dante Abol, tagged by the Quezon City Police District Station 7 as the 7th most wanted man in their list was arrested in Barangay Gulod, Q.C. last Tuesday by members of the PNP-DEG National Capital Region with the assistance of the local police.

The other suspects were identified as Mark Anthony Elvambuena,30; Khim Rose Deria,25; and Rocky Arcilla,36.
