Recent drug-bust operations in Camarines Sur and Camarines Norte have resulted in multiple arrests and the dismantlement of a drug den.

On Friday, February 23, authorities conducted a buy-bust operation at Brgy. Matauroc, Minalabac, Camarines Sur, that led to the apprehension of four alleged drug offenders and the dismantlement of a drug den, putting a stop to its illegal activities.

15 grams of suspected “shabu” with an estimated street value of P102,000 were seized during the operation and were then transferred to the custody of the Provincial Police Drug Enforcement Unit (PPDEU), Camarines Sur Provincial Police Office (PPO) for further processing.

Furthermore, on Thursday, February 22, Camarines Norte PPO nabbed two individuals in two separate buy-bust operations.
