5 jail officers test positive for drugs

MANILA, Philippines—Five jail officers were found positive for drug use after random drug testing this month, the Department of Interior and Local Government announced Friday.

Without naming the officers, the DILG in a statement said two of the officers were from Metro Manila, one from the Cordillera, one from the Ilocos region, and one from the Caraga region.

Some 2,007 randomly selected jail personnel had undergone testing this month in line with government’s renewed anti-drug campaign.

Those who tested positive for shabu (methamphetamine hydrochloride) and marijuana will undergo confirmatory tests and may face criminal and administrative charges, the DILG said
