A 31-YEAR-OLD woman ranked number 7 in the most wanted persons list of Police Station 1 was arrested by operatives at Purok Masinadyahon, Barangay 12, Tuesday afternoon, January 28.

Police identified the suspect as April Orolan, of Barangay 12.

Police Major Jovil Sedel, chief of Police Station 1, said Wednesday that Orolan was arrested by virtue of arrest warrant for the crime of robbery at 3:33 p.m.

The arrest warrant was issued by Judge Celeste Bernad of Regional Trial Court Branch 44, Bacolod City.

Meanwhile, two drug personalities were also arrested by operatives of Police Station 1 at Purok Masinadyahon, Barangya 12, Wednesday afternoon.

Arrested were Jobal Rojo, 22; and Ruel Salmingo, 25, both residents of Barangay 12.

Sedel said the suspects were arrested after they sold a sachet of shabu to a police undercover at about 1:30 p.m.

Police recovered from the suspects’ possession 13 sachets of shabu with estimated market value of P28,000, the P300 marked money, and drug paraphernalia.
