BENGUET — Authorities here spearheaded another major Marijuana eradication operation on Wednesday, June 22.

Police searched two separate plantations in Sitio Lanipew, Tacadang, Kibungan, where vast clandestine cannabis farms were discovered.

Burned by police came to a total of 880 fully-grown Marijuana plants in the two sites, 1,600 pieces of Marijuana Seedlings and 4 kilos of marijuana stalks with an estimated value of P848,000.00.
