Fitness trainer, 3 others caught in PDEA drug bust

A FITNESS trainer and three others were caught in a series of operations by the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) Central Visayas in Barangay Labangon, Cebu City on Tuesday morning, October 31.

The agents seized 28 grams of white crystals believed to be shabu worth P140,000, an estimated market value.

In Sitio Sta. Ana, Labangon, Fergus Arvin Arellano, 36, and his alleged cohort Markey Bayno, 19, were arrested around 3 a.m., yielding 20 grams of "shabu" worth P100,000.

PDEA information officer Leia Albiar said Arellano is a fitness trainer and was the target of the drug bust.

Some of Arellano's customers were call center agents, and according to the PDEA officer, the suspect can dispose of 200 grams of shabu per week in Labangon and Guadalupe.

Two hours later, motorcycle-for-hire driver Camilo Vallecera and his wife Elizabeth were arrested on A. Lopez St.

Agents seized eight grams of shabu worth P40,000.

Camilo allegedly can sell 300 to 500 grams of shabu per week in Labangon and Talamban.

Suspects will be charged for violating the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002. (KAL/SunStar Cebu)
