Gov. Uy commends PNP and PDEA for arrest of jail officer

Compostela Valley Gov. Jayvee Tyron L. Uy commended the strengthened anti-drug efforts of the Philippine National Police and Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency that led to the arrest of Jail Officer I Roy Del Socorro Aguinaldo of Montevista District Jail last July 6, 2018 at 7: 10 PM in his residence in Barangay Binuangan, Maco, Compostela Valley.

PNP and PDEA seized 5.8 grams of shabu worth Php 79, 000 during the operation. Her wife, Maria Myrlene Aguinaldo was also arrested after he conspired with her husband in the illegal drug trade. Aguinaldo is considered the top regional target personality for Region XI.

In his statement, Gov. Uy congratulated the joint efforts of the two agencies. He said that illegal drug trade owns no room in Compostela Valley.

“I commend both the PNP and PDEA for a job well done. I am happy with this recent development. This only proves that we are very serious in our pursuit to finally end the drug trade in Compostela Valley”, he said.

The young governor who also serves as the head of the Regional Peace and Order Council for Davao Region further said that the governmentwill impose the law regardless of the persons involved.

“Its unfortunate that a public officer is involved in this illicit activity. But we recognize no sacred cow. The law must be imposed even in public officers who breached the law. We will make no distinction”, he continued. //(ID COMVAL)
