“Ikinagagalak ko po ang sunod-sunod na matagumpay na operasyong inilagak ng Southern Police District upang mahanap at maaresto ang mga wanted persons na ito na nagtatago sa kamaynilaan.  Inuulit ko, hindi po ito ang tamang lugar para sa inyo sapagkat tinitiyak ko na sa ilalim ng aking pamumuno ay mahahanap at maihaharap natin sa husgado ang mga wanted na ito upang papanagutin sa mga kasong naisampa laban sa kanila.” Wika ni PMGEN DANAO JR.

All the arrested accused were brought to the police station pending the issuance of a commitment order and return of the warrant of arrest to the court of origin.
