ALMOST P1 million worth of illegal drugs were confiscated from a woman during a buy-bust in Barangay San Roque, Cebu City at 6 p.m. Monday, Dec. 5, 2022.
Capt. Joffre Grande of the Regional Police Drug Enforcement Unit in Central Visayas (RPDEU 7) headed the operation that led to the arrest of Cynthia Cutamora, 33, and a certain Roderick Mariquit, 26, of Barangay Pangpang, Barili town, southwest Cebu.
Cutamora, who was identified as the subject of the buy-bust, yielded at least 135 grams of suspected shabu worth P918,000 which were found in her shoulder bag.
Lt. Col. Ronnie Failoga, chief of RPDEU 7, said Cutamora can be considered a high-value individual due to the large amount of illegal drugs that were taken from her.
The police described Cutamora as a “keeper” of illegal drugs and seller of the contraband but she reportedly dispose around 100 grams of shabu in a week.
Cutamora and Mariquit will be facing charges for violation of Republic Act 9165, or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002. (BBT / TPT)
