“Ang nais natin ay mailayo ng ating mga kabataan sa pagkakarera o sugal sa murang edad. Hindi natin hahayaan na ito ay makasira sa kanilang kinabukasan. Kung kaya’t mariin ng aking babala sa mga kapulisan na tugisin at sugpuin ang mga ganitong sugal sa kanilang mga nasasakupan at huwag na huwag makikinabang sa anumang ilegal na gawain katulad nito,” ARD NCRPO stated.
