Supplies of shabu, which allegedly originated from the National Penitentiary in Muntinlupa City, have found their way to Negros Occidental.

This was admitted by several arrested drug peddlers, who claimed to have contacts inside the national penitentiary who are serving their sentences for drug-related cases, Supt. Santiago Rapiz, Victorias City police chief, yesterday said.

Rapiz said the supply of shabu is reportedly being sent through a courier service company. . moremoremore

30 shooting incidents noted

Thirty shooting incidents were reported in Dumaguete City from January to November this year, less eight incidents compared to 2014, with 38 shootings.

Mayor Manuel Sagarbarria reported on this to clarify insinuations that the peace and order situation in Dumaguete is getting worse, and that his administration is mum on the issue.

He said that based on facts and figures, it would appear that it has even improved, although there are 49 more days to go before 2015 ends.moremoremore
