Police Regional Office-18 (PRO-18) director, Police Chief Superintendent Edmund Gonzales, is seeking the support and cooperation of the local Muslim community in combating illegal drugs.
According to Gonzales, he ordered Bacolod City Police Office (BCPO) acting director, Police Senior Superintendent Jack Wanky, to talk with local Muslim leaders and have them coordinate with the community.
This comes after BCPO anti-drug operatives seized P1 million worth of shabu in Barangay 40, which resulted in the arrest of three Muslims.
He also made an appeal to Muslim leaders to help identify and capture drug suspects.
Gonzales said the Muslim community should grab the opportunity as it is also a way of “cleansing the name of their group.”
Earlier, 19-year-old Aisa Million, 24-year-old Rashel Tantua, and 24-year-old Nelrose Sulta were arrested by the City Drug Enforcement Unit (CDEU).
Authorities confiscated 21 sachets of shabu from the suspects.
Wanky, meanwhile, believes the seized drugs were supplied by the Camaria drug group./WDJ
