27 drug pushers, users arrested in Mabalacat

Mabalacat City Chief of Police Superintendent Juritz Rara and Senior Inspector Melvin Florida Jr. present the 27 illegal drug pushers/users arrested over the Holy Week under the Oplan Double Barrel to City Mayor Marino Morales at the Mabalacat City Police Station I Barangay Poblacion. “Ngayong naaresto kayo, hindi naman kayo ang mahihirapan kung hindi ang mga pamilyang naiwan niyo. Dito pakakainin kayo ng gobyerno. Maswerte kayo at buhay pa kayo hanggang ngayon,” Morales said.

At least 27 illegal drug pushers and users were arrested over the Holy Week by the Mabalacat City police led by Supt.​ ​Juritz​ Rara and Drug Enforcement Team Leader Senior Inspector Melvin Florida.

This, after the intensive re-launching of the Philippine National Police’s anti-illegal drugs drive dubbed as ‘Oplan Double Barrel Reloaded.’

“Magtinda ka man ng shabu o hindi, makakasurvive ka sa hirap ng buhay. Kapag kumapit ka sa shabu dalawa lang ang pupuntahan mo, kulungan o kaya mamamatay ka,” Florida said to the drug dependents.

In its latest released data, the third most wanted person in the city with an alias ‘Tarzan’ and the top 8 most wanted under the provincial level were among the captured individuals.

“We strongly support our President Rodrigo Roa Duterte’s advocacy to eradicate illegal drugs dahil kawawa ang mga anak atin. Ngayong naaresto kayo, hindi naman kayo ang mahihirapan kung hindi ang mga pamilyang naiwan niyo. Dito pakakainin kayo ng gobyerno,” City Mayor Marino Morales said during the presentation of arrested drug related individuals on Thursday.

Five among the 27 arrested are women.

“Maswerte kayo at buhay pa rin kayo hanggang ngayon dahil seryoso ang ating pangulo sa kampanya laban sa droga. Kung wala kayong kasalanan, nariyan ang korte para patunayan ang mga sarili niyo. Kung aamin naman kayo ay pagsisihan niyo ang mga nagawa niyo,” City Vice Mayor Christian Halili added.

Joining Morales and Halili are Councilors Rogelio Yumul and Jerry Basilio.
