The National Capital Region Police Office Regional Director PMGEN GUILLERMO LORENZO ELEAZAR said that the drugs were packed in a tea bag. “Kung makikita natin itong mga nakuha natin na mga drugs ay nakalagay sa isang bag, teabag. Ito ay napaka familiar sa atin kasi hindi lang siguro apat o limang beses na nagkaroon ng operation, hindi lamang ang NCRPO kung hindi pati na rin PDEA at other units, na dto natin nakuha sa teabags. Kami ay naniniwala na kasama ito sa batch na nakuha natin noon na ngayon ay ating nakukuha. You can imagine kung ito ay napakarami na kumalat na sa iba’t ibang lugar natin. Pero, ganon pa man, pangako ko sa ating mga kababayan, tuloy tuloy ang ating operations laban sa ilegal na droga kahit san pa siya nakalagay. Huhulihin natin yang mga sumisira at lumalason sa mga anak natin.”
PMGEN GUILLERMO LORENZO ELEAZAR PMGEN ELEAZAR assured that, “With the arrest of this trusted man of the leader, itutuloy tuloy natin hanggang matumbok natin yung mga members nila. So, inaalam natin, of course, itong mga pinagdadalhan nila at may idea na rin tayu kung saan ang pinagkukuhanan nila. At ito ay tuloy tuloy na operation na isasagawa through case build-up operations ng ating Regional Drug Enforcement Unit”.
