CAMP DANGWA, Benguet – A lady police officer led the destruction of some P11.4 million worth of marijuana plants in eight plantation sites at the mountainous area in Kibungan, Benguet.
Police Col. Elmer Ragay, provincial director, said the Benguet Provincial Mobile Force Company led by PLt. Joyce Gayaden, discovered eight marijuana plantations at Sitio Batangan, Barangay Tacadang, Kibungan, Benguet last Thursday.
Ragay said Gayaden immediately called a back-up team from the Benguet Provincial Office and Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency for the destruction of the illegal plants.
Ragay said the marijuana plants were destroyed and burned onsite. No person was arrested during the operation. (Zaldy Commanda)
