Three alleged drug personalities were rounded up by police following a buy-bust operation set up to apprehend a man suspected of dealing illegal narcotics in Barangay Salvador, Cortes.
Suspect 29-year-old Christian Eleccion was caught red-handed selling a sachet of shabu to an undercover cop, but was initially able to bolt after sensing the ongoing buy-bust operation.
Ellecion rushed toward a hut where members of the Provincial Public Safety Company (PPSC) cornered him and chanced upon two alleged drug users.
The two suspects, identified as John Noe Bill and Adones Hamot, were caught in possession of two packets of suspected shabu and drug paraphernalia, while Eleccion yielded eight packs of suspected shabu.
According to Police Superintendent Ricardo Digay, chief of the PPSC, Eleccion is included in Cortes’Â watch list of drug personalities.
Charges for violating Section 5 and Section 11 of Republic Act 9165 will be filed against Eleccion while Hamot and Nobil will be facing cases for violating Section 11 of Republic Act 9165. (Willy Maestrado)
