On Thursday, May 28, joint Police operatives uprooted and destroyed  marijuana plants  with  estimated  value of Php210,000.00 at a mountainous vicinity of Lacnog barangay this city near the Kalinga-Isabela boundary. 

According to OIC Provincial Director PCol. Davy Vicente Limmong, a concerned  citizen informed the Police of the presence of armed men roaming the mountainous part of the barangay. Responding  combined PNP unit  instead  discovered  the  marijuana plantation.
 
The composite team estimated the plantation land area  as  300 square meters planted with  about 1,050 fully grown marijuana plants. 

No cultivator was apprehended during the operation. 
 
With this accomplishment, the PNP provincial command together with anti-narcotic operatives  are  more committed  to  relentless anti-illegal drugs operation in line with the directive of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte to clear all barangays of illegal drugs.
 
In a related development,the  good  Police – civilian rapport and humanitarian outreach activities to communities resulted to the voluntary surrender on May 27 of one former militia of the New People’s Army (NPA) from Sitio Ubel, barangay Gawaan, Balbalan.
 
Aka “Junjun”, 51, farmer voluntarily surrendered to  Limmong purposedly to clear his name anew.
 
 Police report said  ‘aka Junjun”  previously surrendered to the 21st Infantry Batallion , Philippine Army  sometime in 2008. In  2001, the suspect was charged in court  for  double murder and multiple frustrated murder but said case was dismissed on January 30, 2009.
 
He  decided to  show up to the authorities after he was informed that   his name  was  listed in the tarpaulin hanged by Balbalan MPS at the barangay hall. The tarpaulin  listed Cordillera Police’s    Wanted CPP NPA Terrorists  where   ‘aka Junjun’  was marked with a Php 150,000.00 reward money.
 
 “We encourage other CNT members to surrender, return to the folds of the law and enjoy the benefits under the Enhanced Comprehensive Local Integration Program (E-CLIP) of the government rather than continue the violent struggle with the communist terrorist groups,” Limmong said.
