THREE persons were caught in a drug bust on Wednesday dawn, January 3, on Andres Abellana St. in Barangay Guadalupe, Cebu City.

Anti-narcotics operatives of Guadalupe Police Station seized 105 grams of white crystals believed to be methamphetamine hydrochloride, locally known as “shabu,” worth P1.2 million, a Dangerous Drugs Board value.

Suspects are Chitto Bayno, 30, Mark Ratcho, 35, and Marie Angelie Espanillo, 21.

They were about to check in a hotel when the drug bust happened.

Bayno was the target of the operation.

Suspects will be facing complaints for violating Republic Act 9165, or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002. (KAL/SunStar Cebu)
