‘Well-known personalities
probed for drugs’


There are still some well-known personalities being investigated by the Bacolod City Police Office for possible involvement in the illegal drugs trade, City Police Director Senior Supt. Ricardo de la Paz said yesterday.

De la Paz said they are still collecting evidences against these personalities but would not divulge whether they are politicians or businessman.

Last month, BCPO recovered an alleged “bluebook” from the residence of a couple raided by the members of the City Anti-Illegal Drugs Special Operations Task Group in April which contained the names of some prominent individuals.

De la Paz said that once there are enough evidences against these people, charges will be filed against them.

Meanwhile, De la Paz also said that 18 drug personalities were neutralized by the CAIDSTOG in less than one week of anti-Illegal drugs operations in different places in Bacolod.

He said they have intensified their campaign against illegal drugs to reduce or contain the supply of illegal drugs circulating in Bacolod to protect students.

The Police Regional Office-6 is set to give commendations to CAIDSTOG operatives headed by Supt. Santiago Rapiz for their relentless campaign against illegal drugs.*APN
