A male drug suspect tagged as a high value target by the Bohol Provincial Police Office (BPPO) was arrested in a raid conducted by police intelligence units in Panglao on Friday morning.
Police identified the suspect as Apolinar Horcerada, a resident of barangay Danao in Panglao.
In a report, police said that operatives of the BPPO’s Provincial Intelligence Branch (PIB) led by Sr. Insp. Jojit Mananquil found 20 grams of shabu in the suspect’s possession.
The drugs were seized by the PIB during a raid at Horcerada’s house by serving a search warrant issued by Judge Suseso Arcamo of Regional Trial C Branch 47 in Tagbilaran City.
According to police, Horcerada was about to attend a court hearing of his son who is also facing a drug charge when police swooped down on his residence.
Horcerada’s son was arrested last year in a drug buy-bust operation.
Earlier, Horcerada was also charged for illegal possession of firearms.
He is now detained at Camp Dagohoy in Tagbilaran City as more complaints are set to be filed against him. (A. Doydora)
