PNP chief General Dionardo Carlos said the operation showed that the national police is serious in its crackdown on drug traffickers.

“I congratulate our hardworking men and women. This will also serve as a warning to all those who are still engaged in this illegal transaction. The teeth of the law will come after you,” he said in a statement, reminding police units to better monitor the illegal drug situation in their jurisdictions.

The PNP said the drugs seized in the bust and the arrest of the suspects “adds up to the long list of achievements that the PNP has gained through its relentless effort to eradicate the drug problem in the country.”
