“Binabati ko po ang ating mga tauhan sa matagumpay na pagkasabat sa humigit-kumulang apat na kilo ng pinaniniwalaan nating ilegal na droga. Napakalaking kabawasan po nito sa kasalukuyang dami ng ilegal na drogang umiikot sa merkado at sumisira sa buhay ng ating mga kababayan lalo na po ng mga kabataan. Magsilbing aral din po sana sa iba pa nating target na personalidad na iwasan na po ang manglaban. Hindi po namin nais ang ganitong madugong engkwentro. Nawa po ay mapayapa na lamang silang makipagtulungan at harapin ang kanilang pananagutan sa batas upang magkaroon ng pagkakataong magbagong buhay.” Wika ni PMGEN DANAO JR.
The suspected illegal drugs were duly marked and inventoried before it was turned over to the crime laboratory for confirmatory testing.
