THE PHILIPPINE Drug Enforcement Agency-Davao (PDEA-11) is investigating the continued entry of illegal drugs into the Davao Prison and Penal Farm after six detainees tested positive for shabu (crystal meth). PDEA-11 Regional Director Antonio E. Rivera reported last week that the inmates from the medium security camp were found positive in a random testing conducted last month.
