Walang kawala! Francis Zamora joins PNP raid of indoor marijuana garden
San Juan City Mayor Francis Zamora joined operatives of the Philippine National Police in raiding an indoor marijuana plantation located at the fourth floor of a building in A. Rita St., Barangay Batis on September 19.
Zamora and the police discovered a number of air-conditioned rooms that serve as marijuana nurseries and laboratory. They were filled with marijuana plants of varying sizes and packed marijuana leaves ready for distribution.
Prior to the raid, Zamora and the newly installed San Juan City Chief of Police, Col. Jaime Santos, have been working on the information about the existence of an indoor marijuana plantation and laboratory in Brgy. Batis.
Zamora said the raid showed the local government’s intolerance to the illegal drug trade.
“Kalaban natin ang droga, hindi ako papayag na mayroong ganito sa Lungsod ng San Juan. Ito ay isang babala laban sa mga nag-iisip magbenta at magpaikot ng droga sa San Juan, huhulihin natin sila,” he said.
Further investigation is being conducted in preparation for the filing of appropriate charges against the perpetrators in violation of Republic Act 9165, the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002.
