Dismantled were the Ramos, Divinagracia, Bacus, Macundato, Virtucio and Burgos drug groups through Oplan Tokhang and other illegal drugs operations, PLt. Judeses Catalogo, Negros Occidental Police Provincial Office (NOCPPO) spokesman, said.
They are closely monitoring the remaining members of the drug groups individually engaging in the illegal drugs trade, he said.
