Kelly was a subject of several surveillance operations for the past few days until finally arrested.

PROCOR Regional Director PCSUPT Elmo Francis Oco Sarona said that the PNP does not tolerate persons involved in drugs, much more, a member of the PNP organization or any other government agency, like the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology which JO3 Kelly belongs. Regardless of ranks, those who violates the law is not worthy to wear his/her uniform thus should be removed from the service. This is so because one of the important components of the anti-drug strategy of the government is internal cleansing.

The PNP continuously intensify its internal cleansing efforts, as part of its commitment to weed out erring agents and personnel of the government, particularly those involved in the illegal drugs trade.

PCSUPT SARONA earnestly solicit the public’s support in the PNP's anti-illegal drugs drive and report any member of the government involved in such nefarious activity in their communities for the immediate arrest and possible rescue of would-be victims of drug addicts. (PROCOR RPIO)
