Three suspected drug dealers in Tagbilaran City were arrested in separate anti-drug operations conducted over the weekend.
Anti-narcotics operatives of the Tagbilaran City police on Sunday evening collared Waryn Galapin in Barangay Booy in the city.
An undercover policeman of the City Anti-Illegal Drug Special Operation Task Group (CAIDSOTG) reportedly bought shabu from the suspect at 6:30 p.m.
Following the transaction, other CAIDSOTG operatives led by SPO4 Yolando Bagotchay Jr. moved in to arrest Galapin.
On Saturday, the Tagbilaran City police set up another sting operation against Eric â€œTambokâ€ Elle at 5:50 p.m.
The suspect, a resident of Ligason St. Brgy. Bool, was arrested along PeÃ±aflor, Taloto-Ubajan Rd., Tagbilaran City.
A police poseur-buyer was able to successfully transact with the alleged pusher, resulting in his immediate arrest.
Recovered from the suspectâ€™s possession were four packets of shabu and drug sorting paraphernalia including a digital weighing scale and a container believed to have been used to store drugs.
Three hours after Elleâ€™s arrest, another alleged pusher was arrested in Tagbilaran City. This time, in Brgy. Taloto.
Police identified the suspect as George Chui II who was also subjected to a buy-bust operation.
He was allegedly caught red-handed selling P500 worth of shabu to a police posing as a buyer.
The three suspects are currently jailed at the detention facility of the Tagbilaran City police station pending the filing of charges against them. (Rey Tutas)
