Erap orders crackdown vs drug lairs

MANILA Mayor Joseph Estrada on Thursday ordered the Manila Police District to conduct search-and-destroy operations against drug lairs in Manila after the Manila City Government and the police discovered a drug den under a bridge in Binondo on Wednesday.

Estrada, who is still furious about the discovery of a clandestine drug den under a bridge, also directed the 896 barangay chairmen to take part in the campaign and act as the “eyes and ears” of the police during the operations.

“We will thoroughly scour the entire city, every corner, every alley, every bridge, all possible hiding places. If it’s possible we will turn the city upside down to locate and neutralize these secret drug dens, if there are still any,” Estrada said.
