A POLICEMAN was arrested in a buy-bust operation conducted by the City Anti-Illegal Drugs Special Operations Task Force (CAIDSOTF) in Zamboanga City, a top police official said Tuesday.
Arrested was Police Officer 2 (PO2) Jeffrey Herbano, 37, who is detailed at the Regional Personnel Holding and Accounting Unit (RPHAU) based at Camp Abendan, this city.
Zamboanga City police officer-in-charge Sr. Supt. Angelito Casimiro said Herbano was arrested around 2:30 a.m. Tuesday in the village of Canelar.
Casimiro said Herbano was arrested by the CAIDSOTF after he sold a sachet of shabu for P300 to an undercover policeman.
Casimiro said the arresting team recovered from Herbano’s possession three pieces of P100 marked money, two sachets of suspected shabu, a caliber .45 pistol with 10 live ammunition, and a motorcycle.
Appropriate charges are being readied to be filed against the arrested cop, Casimiro said.
