This was the remark when Philippine Drug Enforcement Administration (PDEA) Region director Ismael G. Fajardo Jr., Ph.D made a surprise visit here and bestowed plaques of commendation to this town’s police station and the town's Mayor.

In simple ceremonies held in front of the municipal hall, Fajardo extolled PSupt Luis Ventura and Mayor Andy Lacson for their “exemplary accomplishments in line with the government’s intensive campaign against illegal drugs specifically the arrest of 4 High Value Targets (HVT)”.
Elected public officials and government employees and businessmen suspected of involvement in illegal drugs are listed by the police as HVT.

Fajardo mentioned the “commendable” arrest of 2 barangay councilors and 2 municipal employees who were all apprehended selling shabu in separate buy-bust operations.
Last week, Ventura led the arrest of 2 municipal employees Abel Datu, 50, of Barngay San Nicolas Poblacion and Armando Pamintuan, 51, of Barangay Green Village, who both sold shabu to policemen poseur buyers.

Barely a month ago, Ventura’s police team also successfully entrapped Barangay Councilors Daniel Quilala of Barangay Alfonso and Noel Sanches of Barangay Sta. Rita.

“We owe our accomplishments (in anti-illegal drugs) to the people of Concepcion especially to Mayor Lacson. Without the mayor’s and the people’s cooperation and support, we cannot do much”, said Ventura.

For his part, Lacson disclosed that, from number 5, this town’s police is now number 1 in terms of accomplishments in the anti-drug campaign of the provincial police office.

“PD (Tarlac Police Provincial Director PSSupt Ritchie Posadas) personally told me that we are No. 1 in the anti-illegal drugs campaign and this is due to the dedication and perseverance of our policemen under the leadership of Superintendent Ventura”, Lacson said.

PSInsp Aquino Bayangan, deputy chief of police, and Ventura received the plaques from Fajardo.
In less than 4 months, Ventura has caused the arrest of 82 persons for drug related offenses.
