Illegal drugs are causing users to commit murder and rape almost everyday.

This was the statement made by Police Regional Director Chief Supt Billy Beltran while underscoring the need for police to combat the illegal drug menace in the community.

“Isipin nyo na lang na epekto ng paggamit ng illegal drugs araw araw, may pinapatay at may nire-rape,” said Beltran during a press conference which coincided with a Media Christmas party held at Camp Batalla.

“Kailangan talaga ng pulis ang mamamayan at media para sugpuin ang illegal na droga,” Beltran added.

Beltran made the statement following a plan by President Rodrigo Duterte to bring back control over the drug war to the police.

Beltran reiterated that the PNP will double its efforts to arrest drug lords and drug suspects next year. (Allen Abastillas)
