Operatives of the Philippine National Police (PNP) arrested the no.5 â€œprovincial level targetâ€ who was caught with 25 grams of suspected shabu worth P295,000 in a drug raid conducted in Ubay on Saturday afternoon.
Police personnel of the Provincial Intelligence Branch (PIB) and the Ubay PNP conducted the joint operation at a house monitored by multiple closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras in Purok 4, Brgy. Poblacion at 3 p.m.
Senior Insp. Roland Lavisto, Ubay police chief, identified the suspect as Dennis Dolotina, a newly knownÂ drug personality who is a resident of the said address.
The raiding team unimpededlyÂ served the search warrant and without having to pursue the suspect despite the multiple CCTV cameras posted around the suspectâ€™s home.
According to Lavisto, the operatives were able to seize four big and nine medium-sized plastic packs containing white crystalline substance believed to be shabu.
The packs of suspected shabu were stashed inside a hidden compartment of a wooden chair, Lavisto added.
Police also recovered Dolotinaâ€™s cellphone and pocketbook which both contained names, information on drug transactions and messages from his apparent boss.
Also found in his home were four electronic tablets and an unspecified amount ofÂ Â cash, but these were not inventoried and were immediately returned to the suspect’s wife.
