Local drug pushers and users continue to surrender four days after Rodrigo Duterte was sworn in to office as the country’s 16th president.

Recently close to 500 individuals submitted themselves to the Culianan Police Station under Sr. Insp. Elmer Solon.

On Saturday, more than 200 from the different barangays under the areas of responsibility of Police Station 4 trooped to the station and submitted themselves to profiling and drug testing.

In an interview, Solon said that in each barangay, officials accompanied the surrenderers to the police.

Solon added that they followed the proper procedure in the surrender and they advised the drug users and pushers to stay away from drugs and live a new life as law abiding people.

On Sunday more than 200 other individuals from Taluksangay trooped to the barangay office where they were received by the police led by Solon and barangay officials led by the chairman and former District 2 Congresswoman Lilia Nuño and Councilor Lilibeth Nuño.

Those who surrendered were given free haircut by Nuño after profiling and same were given advice.

Solon, on the other hand, appealed to those who did not surrender yet to do same before they will be arrested during buy-bust operations.

He further saidthat they will monitor all those who surrendered and at the same time require them to feed information to the police of any individual engaged in the proliferation of prohibited drugs. – Dan Toribio
