OPERATIVES of the Anti-Illegal Drug Special Operations Task Force (AIDSOTF) of the local police have arrested three people, including a couple, in a buy-bust operation in Zamboanga City.
The task force said the buy-bust operation was carried out around 3 a.m. Thursday in Purok 3B, Barangay Recodo, 15 kilometers west of Zamboanga City.
The task force identified the arrested suspects as Rhuskin Buhari alias Nga-Nga, 37, and his wife, Mudzna, and Romnick Verina alias Nick.
The task force said the suspects were arrested after they handed over a small heat-sealed plastic sachet of suspected shabu to an undercover policeman for P300.
The task force said recovered from the suspects’ possession, aside from the P300 “marked money,” were four large sizes and one medium size heat-sealed plastic sachet of suspected shabu and other prohibited drug paraphernalia.
The confiscated heat-sealed plastic sachets of suspected shabu were forwarded to the Police Crime Laboratory for examination.
The suspects were detained at the police headquarters while appropriate charges are set to be filed against the suspects, said the task force.(Bong Garcia)
