Village official falls in drug bust

A VILLAGE official was arrested in a buy-bust operation Friday, December 29, police said.

Florentino Ebol, 55, village councilor of Pamucutan, was found in possession of P5,000 worth of suspected methamphetamine hydrochloride (shabu) packed in three medium-sized plastic sachets, said Senior Inspector Albert Alfaro, Police Station 9 chief.

Other items allegedly confiscated from Ebol were a caliber .38 revolver with live ammunition, P400 marked money and P1,000 cash believed to be proceeds from the sale of illegal drugs.

Alfaro said the buy-bust operation was conducted around 9:30 p.m. Friday in Zone 2 in the village of Pamucutan, about 23 kilometers west of Zamboanga City.

He said they had placed Ebol under surveillance prior to the buy-bust operation.

Ebol would be charged for violation of the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2001 and illegal possession of firearms. (Bong Garcia/SunStar Philippines)
