Tokhang yields 9,118 So. Leyteños

April 15 - 21, 2017

CAMP ALFREDO BANTUG - Since Maasinborn President Rodrigo Roa Duterte assumed office, at least 9,118 suspected Southern Leyteño “drug-inflicted” persons have voluntarily surrendered to the different PNP stations in the province. This was disclosed by Provincial Director Police Senior Superintendent Warren de Leon recently during a press conference at the PNP provincial headquarters.

According to De Leon, eighty (80) of those who surrendered were under the PNP’s newly-launched program “Double Barrel Reloaded”

Double Barrel Reloaded consists now of two aspects: Tokhang (Knock and Plead) Revisited and High Value Target (HVT) Reloaded.

“This time it is going to be more extensive, aggressive and well coordinated, with built-in systems that guarantee full accountability and instill internal discipline among all police personnel,” De Leon said.

Both operations are being conducted by the newly formed anti-illegal drugs group, called Drug Enforcement Unit (DEU), with police personnel having no blemish or record of involvement in illegal drug activities.

“Tokhang Revisited” is a new approach by the PNP that conducts house-to-house visitation and counselling to family members if one of them is suspected of being involved in illegal-drug activities.

“As of now, we have already visited 2,947 houses, and also invited religious leaders and local officials to participate in the house-to-house visitation,” de Leon added.

For High Value Target (HVT) Reloaded, the police chief said that policemen just
recently arrested 2 HVT and 5 “street level” drug pushers for the month of March. Twenty-three kilos of marijuana and at least 2.63 grams of shabu were
recovered and seized from various buy-bust operations.(By MARK L. RIMAS)
