Another suspected drug peddler in Panglao yielded a five-digit valued â€œshabuâ€ confiscated after a buy-bust operation.
Police tagged the latest Panglao haul to oneÂ Jonathan Arbolerasâ€”also known as Baba–a 43-year-old resident of barangay Danao, Panglao, who yielded 6.10 grams of shabu with estimated street value of P70,800, including the sachet of shabu purchased by the poseur-buyer at P500 during the buy-bust operation on Sunday morning.
The team of Panglao chief of police, Senior Inspector Joemar Pomarejos, already filed the complaint related to the alleged sale of dangerous drugs, a violation based on Section 5 of Republic Act 9165 or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002, before the Provincial Prosecutorâ€™s Office on Monday.
Aside from the sachet of shabu as the subject of the buy-bust and the marked money, the police team also recovered two medium-size sachet of shabu and four sachets with traces of shabu, all found in the laboratory test to weigh 6.10 grams.
Also seized from Arboleras were drug paraphernalia.
Pomarejose said that based on intelligence report, Arbolerasâ€™s patrons were foreigners.
The police tagged Arboleras as one of the suspected big-time shabu pusher operating in Panglao.
Meanwhile, Loboc police team arrested another armed suspected drug personality during an early morning raid yesterday.
Loboc chief of police,Â Inspector Joseph Lopena, identified the arrested person as one JoebertÂ Lagangâ€”also known as Jojoâ€”a 38-year-old resident of barangay Canlasid, Loboc.
The raiding team swooped down his residence based on a search warrant issued by Executive Presiding Judge Dionisio Calibo Jr. of the Regional Trial Court Branch 50.
During the raid, the police team recovered six packs of shabu, an unlicensed caliber 38 revolver with five ammunitions, and drug paraphernalia.
Lopena also said they found an area in Lagangâ€™s house that seemed to have been set for pot sessions, but no one was caught sniffing shabu during the police operation.
