ABOUT 35 police officers in five Lapu-Lapu City police precincts that attended a seminar on criminal profiling underwent a surprise drug test at the city’s police headquarters.
Chief Insp. Mark Gifter Sucalit, City Intelligence Branch (CIB) chief of the Lapu-Lapu City Police Office, said the test is done to weed out the police officers using drugs.
The drug tests came as four persons were arrested in separate anti-drug operations in Talisay City and Minglanilla town last Monday evening.
In Talisay City, suspects identified as Antonio Abala of barangay Inayawan in Cebu City, 20-year-old DJ Panimdim and a 17-year-old boy of Barangay Tangle, Talisay City were arrested in a drug bust.
The suspects yielded seven sachets of shabu worth P38,000. In Minglanilla town, police arrested a certain Isagani Dela Cruz of Barangay Tangke, Talisay City.
Taken from his possession were sachets and three packs of shabu worth P400,000 and P3,000 in cash
