Twenty drug offenders have been arrested in separate drug operations in Lamitan City during the first quarter of this year.

Sr. Inspector Roel Gasoh, Lamitan Police Deputy Chief, said that all the suspects have been committed to jail.

Gasoh said that majority of the arrested suspects are outsiders from other areas in Basilan  such as Tipo-Tipo and Tuburan.

“Taga ibang lugar and karamihan na na-arrest namin during the series of operations. Dinadala nila ang mga illegal drugs dito sa Lamitan City para ibenta sa pushers,” Gasoh explained.

Based on police records, Lamitan police have arrested 38 drug pushers during their anti-drug campaign in 2017.  (Allen Abastilllas)
