ABOUT P1.1 million worth of illegal drugs were confiscated following the arrest of an ex-convict Monday night, April 10, in Mahayahay, Barangay Bayabas, Cagayan de Oro City.
The suspect, identified as Roly Delota, 39, a resident of Mahayahay, Barangay Bayabas and considered as high value target, yielded 150 grams of suspected methamphetamine hydrochloride or shabu including a P13,600 cash.
Police Station 8 Chief Dennis Ebsolo led the drug bust that netted Delota who already served jail for same offense before his release in 2014.
Ebsolo tagged Delota as a hardcore drug personality.
“Daghan na units nga gusto modakop sa iya pero wala gyud siya ma-neutralize kay naay mga tawo nga gatabang nga dili siya madakpan. Uban ni sa dako nga grupo naay pareha ra niya og level ug naa pay mas labaw (Several units pursued him but they weren’t able to neutralize him because there were people helping him. He was a part of a large group with members in the same level as he is and some in a higher level),” Ebsolo said.
Police Regional Office-Northern Mindanao Chief Agripino Javier has commended the police operatives for the job well done and urged them to continue the unwavering efforts in the anti-criminality police operations and to eradicate all forms of criminality particularly on illegal drugs.
