PHILIPPINE National Police agents on Monday discovered a clandestine marijuana plantation in Kibungan, Benguet where they uprooted and destroyed an estimated P120,000 worth of fully-grown cannabis plants and seedlings, PNP chief, General Debold M. Sinas said yesterday.

Sinas said no arrests were made during the operation in Sitio Gayang, Bgy. Dalepey in Kibungan municipality although his men are now verifying the owner of the lot with the Municipal Assessor’s Office.

Members of the PNP Drug Enforcement Group headed by Brigadier Gen. Ronald O. Lee spearheaded the marijuana eradication drive in the area with the assistance of the Cordillera Police Regional Office and the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency, Sinas said.
