Tuesday, February 5, 2013
MANILA -- The Justice department has recommended the filing of five counts of drug charges against an American disc jockey for possession nine kilograms of shabu and other illegal substance inside his condominium unit in Makati City.
Brian Kevin Hills, an American DJ, was charged with violation of the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002 for possession of 4.89 grams of cocaine, 8.75 grams of Nitrazepam, 2.34 grams of Zolpidem, .68 grams of Diazepam and 9,384.46 grams of shabu.
In a resolution, Assistant State Prosecutor Juan Pedro Navera dismissed the alibi of Hills that it was physically impossible for him to have participated in the test-buy as he was out with his friends and relatives for dinner on November 7, 2012, or 13 days before the police searched his condo unit at the Columns in Makati.
"Respondent was not able to adduce sufficient evidence to prove his alibi," the resolution said.
Based on the complaint against Hills, about a kilo of shabu, five grams of cocaine, tablets of the anti-anxiety drug Valium and syringes were also seized from the 33-year-old suspect's condo unit by virtue of a search warrant issued by Quezon City Judge Fernando Sagun Jr. of branch 78.
In coordination with the US Drug Enforcement Administration, the local police had worked to catch Hills red-handed for allegedly distributing illegal drugs in Makati City's party district. (JCV/Sunnex)
