At least 15,000 marijuana plants worth P6 million were uprooted by law enforcers in Danao City, northern Cebu.

Operatives of the Regional Mobile Force Battalion and agents of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) Central Visayas discovered a vast marijuana plantation in Barangay Langosig.

The joint operating team was tipped off about the presence of the marijuana plantation while patrolling the mountain barangays of the city.

 Police said further investigation will be conducted to identify the cultivators of the plantation.

In Barangay Mambaling, Cebu City, a 37-year-old man yielded P1.2-million worth of shabu when he was arrested in a buy-bust operation.

Police said the suspect, identified as Manuel Orongan, was a high-value individual in the campaign against illegal drugs.

Five packs of suspected shabu were seized from the suspect, police said.
