PHILIPPINE National Police (PNP) Chief General Debold Sinas has ordered the pre-charge investigation and summary dismissing proceedings against two Police Non-Commissioned Officers who were found positive for drug use.
Disarmed and placed under restrictive custody by their respective units were Patrolman Reyland Lacap Intal of the Olongapo City Mobile Force Company and Patrolman Benhur S. Ismael of the 2nd Sulu Provincial Mobile Force Company.
“If left undetected, these two police rookies will continue with their drug use and perhaps influence others. They will have to go because there is no place for addicts in the PNP,” Sinas said.
Intal was confirmed positive for THC metabolites of marijuana during a random drug test conducted by the PNP Crime Laborarory on 397 out of 422 personnel of the Olongapo City Police Office (OCPO) on January 15, 2021.
In Sulu, a Crime Laboratory Chemistry Report showed Ismael positive for shabu after screening and confirmatory tests completed on January 14, 2021.
Both police rookies are facing administrative cases filed before the regional investigative bodies.
