Policemen of the Provincial Public Safety Company and Special Weapons and Tactics team arrested during the sting operation Lucena Abellanosa, 46, a resident of Sitio Ubos, Causeway, Tagbilaran City.
According to police, the suspect was spotted selling illegal drugs at 3:40 p.m. along MH Del Pilar, Tagbilaran City on the same day prompting operatives to set up the buy bust.
Police said that the Abellanosa sold shabu worth P500 to an undercover cop but immediately went up a rented room inside the Uptown Lodge leading operatives to four men engaging in a pot session.
The four suspects were identified as Edcel Acebes of Jagna, Carlo Angelo Tutor of Candijay and Kirk Alvarez and Gerwin Kionisala who are natives of Bugang Sagay, Camiguin Province.
Operatives then seized suspected shabu contained in five packets and drug paraphernalia from the suspects.
According to Patricio Degay Jr, chief of the PPSC-SWAT, Abellanosa is included in their watch list of drug personalities.
All of the suspects are currently jailed at the detention facility of Camp Dagohoy in Tagbilaran City pending the filing of charges against them. (Weli Maestrado)
