Meanwhile, in a separate interview, SPO2 Toby Bongon, police spokesman here said that there is an intensified anti-illegal drug campaign, as part of the Project Double Barrel initiated by the Duterte administration.

“In 36 hours our police here have conducted five (5) major illegal drug operations with positive results,” Bongon said.

“First, we have used the strategy of visiting the houses of drug personalities, knocking on their doors. We persuaded them to surrender, if they are indeed drug users," he said.

"The second part is this one that we are doing now, like the implementation of search warrants, buy-bust operations and other strategies that would be useful in our campaign,” he added.

Bongon reminded those who are still involved in illegal drugs that the police operatives would not relax their campaign, until the last drug user or dealer is apprehended.
