• Bulacan town village officials to submit drug test result today


    BULACAN: Some 51 village chiefs, 459 councilmen including treasurers and secretaries and 1,020 barangay tanod (village watchmen) were given by Malolos City Mayor Christian Natividad until today to submit result of their mandatory drug test. Natividad, son of the late Rep. Teodulo Natividad who authored the creation of the Dangerous Drugs Board, was fuming mad after operatives on Tuesday killed four members of a drug-robbery syndicate and arrested a village watchman whose lair was less than a kilometer away from City Hall. He immediately ordered all village officials to undergo drug tests whose results will be known today. “Inspite of our serious and relentless grass root campaign to eradicate the drug menace in the city, the fact that some tanod, who are the first-line of watch keepers in the barangay are drug-infected, is really alarming,” Natividad said. Arrested was Rodolfo Leoncio, village watchman of Barangay Caniogan. The mayor said those to be found positive for drugs will be dismissed from the service and must undergo rehabilitation under the Bahay Pagbabago reformation program.
