One of the arrested persons was Batad’s Number 2 in its Target Watch List of Drug Personalities, Hernani de Tomas @ “Pagong”. Also arrested were Jonne Carpiso and Vivencio Dolendo, Number 6 Target Drug Personalities of Calinog and Pototan, respectively.  

“IPPO will never stop running until all the streets of Iloilo Province are cleansed from illegal drugs. As I’ve said before, let this be a fair warning to all drug peddlers and those planning who want to cause chaos in our campaign against illegal drugs,’ IPPO Director PSSupt Roderick Augustus Alba said

Authorities of IPPO was either warranted by Search Warrant or conducted buy-bust ops, which will render drug peddlers, who will be facing charges in violation of RA 9165, inoperative.#
