IPPO’S 20—Day accomplishment yields WP, guns and ill-drugs
Camp Francisco U. Sumagaysay, Sr., STA. BARBARA, ILOILO, July 10 -- In its fight against all forms of criminality in Iloilo province, Iloilo Police Provincial Office stood out in a staggering accomplishment on Wanted Persons, Loose Firearms and Illegal Drugs from June 1 to 20.
The 20-day period yielded 5 Wanted Persons, 6 high-powered firearms and ammunition and more or less 27 grams of shabu and 4.05 grams of marijuana.
Topping the period’s accomplishment on Wanted Person was the joint operation made by Miag-ao and Guimbal cops with the arrest of Mayette Nonato y Surigawa for Murder. Nonato ranks No. 3 in Lambat-Sibat watch list. Also arrested by Miag-ao cops is No. 8 in LOI Manhunt “Charlie” Mercedo Estocado y Gregorio, wanted for 4-counts of Rape in relation to RA 7610.
On the other hand, five 12-gauge homemade shotguns in service of Search Warrants and .45 caliber Colt with ammos during a saturation drive in Calinog were confiscated by provincial authorities.
Notwithstanding the efforts done by authorities on IPPO’s drive against Wanted Persons and Loose Firearms, the highly anticipated rise on the office’s accomplishment is on illegal drugs with a total of 40 operations.
With an average of 2 successful operations per day, IPPO authorities were able to arrest, in either buy-bust operation or in service of Search Warrants, 63 persons in violation of RA 9165. With this number, approximately 27 grams of shabu with an estimated market value of P162, 000.00 and 4.05 grams of marijuana were amassed from the streets province-wide.
“The records are very apparent that our police are diligently serving their purpose,” said IPPO Director PSSupt Roderick Augustus Alba. “In crucial times like this, it overwhelms me as their commander every time an accomplishment, especially on our campaign against illegal drugs, pops up,” he added.
To pay off their efforts, police stations with accomplishments, through their Chiefs of Police, were given due recognition last July 4 in commemoration of PCR Month.#
