DAGUPAN CITY – After he cleansed an infamous “sitio” of  narcotic peddlers, the chief of police here faces a growing problem of mendicancy and prostitution among the people there.
“The guy who used to peddle shabu (methamphetamine hydrochloride)  and earned two thousand pesos per day could be seen begging the chief of police for a bowl of rice to feed his family,” a police officer who asked anonymity told Northern Watch Newspaper.
Superintendent Neil Miro, this City’s chief of police (COP), said even the wives of the former peddlers succumbed to prostitution to meet economic ends.
“During the heyday of the illegal trade at Sitio Aling, you can even see bystanders there with toy dog breed’s Shih Tzu. Where did they get the monies in buying and feeding those pets?” the same police source posed.
Miro said  to mitigate the impact of unemployment, he already talked with friends in  the construction business in Manila and Pampanga to employ the jobless men in Sitio Aling.
“Actually, madami silang magta-trabaho. May kausap ako sa Manila lahat ng hinde magta-trabaho diyan, ipapadala ko sa Manila. Kausap ko contractor, iyong mga breadwinners para foreman, laborers. May pinadala akong initial apat sa Pampanga,” Miro, who was assigned as chief of police before in that province, stressed.
Last August, two cadavers were thrown by unknown assailants near the entrance of Sitio Aling known as “Little Tondo” of this city that scared the wits off of the residents there who immediately pledged their support to the police’s dangerous drugs war.
 Miro said hat a certain Cayabyab, a notorious narcotics dealer, and a lady dope dealer Onging were murdered in early August.
 Sitio Aling, a part of Barangay Pantal here was known not only as lair of narcotics peddlers, but of snatchers and killers.
