A 22-year-old college student was arrested in an anti-narcotics operation in Barangay San Jose, Talibon at 8:30 p.m. on Friday.
Authorities identified the suspect as Lou Brian Reposposa, a 4th year marine transportation student of the Bohol Institute of Technology-International College in Barangay Mahayag in San Miguel town.
In a report, police indicated that Resposposa was collared by intelligence operatives of the Talibon Police Station at the suspect’s rented house through drug buy-bust.
Resposposa allegedly sold shabu worth P500 to an undercover agent prompting police led by SPO4 Crisanto Bonghanoy to make the arrest.

Resposposa is now detained at the Talibon lock-up jail while charges for violations against Republic Act 9165 or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002.
The operation against the college student was conducted under the supervision of Talibon Police Station commander Chief Insp. Franco Oriol and in coordination of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency. (RT)
