A civilian informant received a cash reward of P1,500,000 from the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) under the PDEA: Operation Private Eye (OPE).
The tipster, who received his monetary reward on August 17, 2015 during the regular PDEA Monday flag-raising ceremony at the PDEA National Headquarters in Quezon City, was identified through his codename: Eboy.

PDEA Director General Undersecretary Arturo G. Cacdac, Jr. said that the OPE is a citizen-based information collection program of the PDEA, the Dangerous Drugs Board (DDB) and various non-government organizations involved in the national campaign against illegal drugs.
The Private Eye Rewards Committee, composed of members from academe, non-government organizations, law enforcement, religious and business sectors, approved a resolution granting a reward of P1.5 million to informant Eboy.
