CITY OF SAN FERNANDO -- Some P3 million worth of suspected shabu was seized by the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) Central Luzon Group and RAIDSOTG of the Police Regional Office 3 (PRO 3) in Limay, Bataan last Sunday.
In a report furnished to Sun.Star Pampanga, PDEA Central Luzon Director Jeoffrey Tacio said the joint anti-illegal drug operation resulted to the arrest of the notorious drug dealers categorized as high value targets.
Tacio said the high impact operation was the result of a two-month case build up by RAIDSOTG and PRO3 under Coplan First Salvo.
The arrested drug peddlers were identified by as Roldan Lakandula, alias Dan Dan, and Marlon Dizon, alias Marlon. The suspects are believed to be the primary suppliers of illegal drugs in the provinces of Bataan, Pampanga and neighboring cities in the National Capital Region.
Sunday's buy-bust operation was conducted around 11 p.m. at Barangay Alangan Unang Kanto, Mansteel Luz, Limay, Bataan, Tacio said.
PDEA agents posing as buyers of shabu completed a deal with the two suspected drug pushers. After the two handed a transparent plastic bag containing “shabu,” elements of RAIDSOTG and PRO-3 collared the suspects while in the act of consummating the offense, said Tacio
Violation of Sec.5 in relation to Sec. 26 (b) of Article II of the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act is being prepared for filing before the court against the suspects, he said. (JTD)
