Five of the 42 men arrested in Bohol during a series of anti-drug operations were high value targets, police said.

Police Col. Jonathan Cabal, Bohol Provincial Police director, said the five men were among the persons caught either engaged in the illegal drugs trade or subject of search warrants during the joint Synchronized Enhancement Managing Police Operation (Sempo) in Bohol last Jan. 9 to 12, 2020.

Of the 5 HVT, two were regional HVTs and three were provincial HVTs.

Cabal said the Sempo, which started at around 10 a.m. and ended past 6 p.m., resulted to the apprehension of the individuals who were caught buying and selling illegal drugs in the area or found to be in possession of illegal drugs upon search.

Sempo, which is the official name for the police’s One-Time-Big-Time operation, also resulted to the confiscation of several sachets of suspected shabu which weighed 51.4 grams with an estimated value of P349,520 and other drugs paraphernalia.
