TEN suspected drug personalities were arrested in buy-busts conducted by the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) 7 in Cebu City last Friday afternoon.

PDEA 7 information officer Leia Albiar said complaints for violating the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002 were filed against the suspects yesterday.

More than P500,000 worth of illegal drugs were seized.

In Kamagayan, a drug den was dismantled while the drug den maintainer, identified as Rogelio Gonzales, was arrested.

Suspected junkies Wulfrando Alibay, Jeffrey Tañola, Candido Arnaiz, Ceilo Pateres and Joanalyd Rose Pacheco were caught.

Operatives seized 192 ampules containing colorless liquid believed to be Nalbuphine hydrochloride (Nubain), worth around P38,600, from the suspects.

They also yielded six packs of suspected shabu weighing approximately 75 grams and worth around P225,000 and several drug paraphernalia.

The operatives later arrested four suspected drug personalities identified as Robert Bentazal, the subject of the operation, Ronniel Dinsay, Daniel Cabanada and Roy Tagalog, 38, in Barangay Tisa.

The operatives confiscated six packs of suspected shabu. The contraband weighed 110 grams, with an estimated street value of P330,000.
