National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) agents were led to a trail of drug suppliers on Wednesday after arresting an alleged drug pusher in Barangay Booy, Tagbilaran City.
The operatives were able to collar a noted drug dealer and his supplier in separate operations but another drug personality suspected of running a bigger operation was able to elude arrest.
The first nabbed suspect, Felix Ignario, a known drug pusher in said village, directed the NBI operatives to his drug supplier after he was arrested in a buy-bust operation past 11:00 in the morning.
NBI agents then conducted a hot pursuit of Buma-atâ€™s dealer who was identified as Wilson Busalan resulting in the arrest of the alleged drug supplier at his residence in Purok 4 of the same barangay.
Upon the interrogation of Buma-at and Busalan, the two suspects disclosed to the NBI information on a “bigger drug supplier” identified as Jun-Jun â€œJhumongâ€ Pahang prompting agents to conduct another operation.
However, Pahang was reportedly able to escape quickly as he saw the incoming agents through a closed-circuit television camera mounted near theÂ front gate of his residence in Brgy. Mansasa.
No contraband was found inside Pahangâ€™s residence as agents noted that he may have taken his illegal drug stash with him as he escaped.
According to the NBI, Buma-at previously surrendered to police under Oplan Tokhang but continued to conduct illegal drug activities. (Allen Doydora)
