LUCENA CITY –– Police arrested 209 suspected criminals and confiscated about P1.6 million worth of illegal drugs in weeklong synchronized operations in Batangas province.

Colonel Rex Arvin Malimban, Batangas police chief, said in a report Wednesday that 88 drug suspects were collared in simultaneous anti-criminality law enforcement operations (Sacleo) from March 22 to 26.

Sacleo replaced the police “one-time, big-time operation,” an all-out war against all local forms of criminalities in a given period.


The police seized 247.2 grams of shabu (crystal meth) and 20.9 grams of marijuana with an estimated Dangerous Drugs Board value of P1,683,264.


Also arrested were 65 illegal gamblers, 49 wanted felons, and seven persons for illegal firearms possession.

Authorities also seized nine undocumented firearms.
