Wilkins Villanueva, PDEA director for northern Mindanao, said Tagarda’s sons Gregor and Bon Clinton  have long been in the watch list because of their alleged links to the local illegal drug trade. He said the Tagarda siblings were “high-value targets” of the PDEA in Carmen, the city’s most populous barangay.
