In Abra, the joint operatives of Abra PPO Provincial Drug Enforcement Unit (PDEU)/ Provincial Intelligence Unit (PIU), Bangued Municipal Police Station (MPS), San Juan MPS, Regional Mobile Force Battalion 15, Regional Intelligence Unit 14 (RIU14), and Regional Intelligence Division conducted a buy-bust operation in Brgy Lingtan, Bangued, that led to the arrest of a newly identified Street Level Individual and the seizure of approximately 1 gram of shabu with a Standard Drug Price (SDP) of Php6,800.00.

After the onsite markings and inventory, the suspect and the evidence recovered were brought to the custody of PDEU for documentation and proper disposition.

Meanwhile, in Kalinga, over P1M worth of dried marijuana leaves and stalks were seized during an anti-criminality checkpoint conducted by the joint personnel of 2nd Kalinga Provincial Mobile Force Company, Pasil MPS, Kalinga PPO PIU, and RMFB15.

Based on the reports, an unidentified person driving a motorcycle speedily passed by and disregarded the checkpoint established in Sitio Dinakan, Brgy Dangoy, Lubuagan, which prompted the police officers to launch a hot-pursuit operation that led to the discovery of the said motorcycle abandoned and crashed along the National Road in Sitio Pokcha, Brgy Cagaluan, Pasil.
