Slain drug lord's brother nabbed

POLICE arrested the brother of a slain drug lord in a drug bust in Barangay Poblacion, Santander, Cebu, at 8:30 a.m. Thursday, July 13.

Henry Zuazula Tapales yielded 1.2 grams of white crystals believed to be shabu (methamphetamine hydrochloride) to the arresting team led by Santander Police Chief Alejandro Batobalonos.

The contraband is worth P14,160.

Also seized from Tapales were P500 cash, a small plastic container, and a cellphone.

Tapales is the brother of Joselito Tapales, who was killed in a shootout with the police in Barangay Basdiot, Moalboal, in December last year.

He will be charged with violation of the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002. (KAL/SunStar Cebu)
