PNP urged to partner w/ LTO in war on drugs in Mt Province
by Angel Baybay

BONTOC, Mountain Province – The Provincial Anti-Drug Abuse Council (Padac) called on the police to coordinate with the provincial field office of the Land Transportation Office to check motorists who might be illegal drug couriers.

In their meeting last week, the anti-drug council took note of an incident where an individual among a convoy of motorcycle riders was collared by the Bontoc police after dried marijuana leaves were found inside his backpack. The rider, identified as Emerson Cuevas Fornis, a resident of San Jose, del Monte, Bulacan and his companions allegedly came from Buscalan, Tinglayan, Kalinga.

According to the police, they put up a check point at Sitio Lagcangeo along the Bontoc-Kalinga national road after receiving a message from an informant. The tipster gave the physical description of the motorcycle where the contraband could be found.

Formal charges were filed against the suspect who was later on released on bail last Sept. 6.

The incident prompted the Padac to make the request to police officers who are also members of the council. The policemen said that after the proper coordination, they will be coming out with actions to check on visitors coming in or passing through the province.

Padac member Rev. Marcial Castañeda described the incident as unfortunate which could affect the declaration of the province as a drug-cleared province. The province was declared drug-cleared on Feb. 14.

Acting Gov. Bonifacio Lacwasan, Jr.  said that the decision of Padac to check on motorists is one of the ways to protect law abiding tourists frequenting various areas in the province.

Lacwasan admits some will be inconvenienced but this is the best way to prevent transportation of drugs.
