Two female drug suspects were caught by National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) agents allegedly selling illegal drugs in Barangay Poblacion III, Tagbilaran City on Thursday.
According to Atty. Arcelito Albao, team leader of the NBI operatives, the two suspects were arrested in a buy-bust operation.
An undercover agent reportedly bought shabu worth P1,000 from suspect Leah Galve, a 44-year-old resident of Hontanosas cor. Matig-a, Poblacion III.
The purchased shabu was then handed over to the poseur-buyer by another suspect identified as 32-year-old Analie Lumbab, also a resident of Matig-a Street.
Operatives immediately arrested Galve and Lumbab who both admitted to dealing drugs after the transaction.
Albao said that the NBI found out of the two suspectsâ€™ operation through information provided by arrested drug suspect Levi Fronteras.
Fronteras was arrested by NBI operatives on Wednesday night at a lodging house along M. Parras Street, Tagbilaran City also in a sting operation.
Albao noted that Galve and Lumbab will be facing charges for violating Section 5 Article II of Republic Act 9165 or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002. (Weli Maestrado)
