TWO suspected drug pushers yielded almost P300, 000 worth of illegal drugs in an operation by the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) 7 in Barrio Luz last Friday afternoon.
Erniel Rulona, 38, and Ana Pabilando, 48, were arrested by agents of the PDEA 7 in Sitio City Central during a drug bust at 2:15 p.m.
Shabu weighing 55 grams with an estimated market value of P275, 000 was confiscated from them.
Rulon and Pabilando were allegedly live-in partners who use their house as a drug den. Agents placed them under surveillance for two weeks.
Rulon and Pabilando can reportedly dispose of 50 to 100 grams of shabu daily. They will face charges for violation of Section 5, Section 26 in relation to Section 5, and Section 11, Article II of RA 9165, or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002.
In Talisay City, a drug personality was also caught in drug bust by the Provincial Intelligence Branch (PIB) of the Cebu Provincial Police Office (CPPO).
Lindon Cabajar, 27, the subject of the buy-bust and his cohort Alvin Raveno, were arrested by intelligence operatives in Creek Ville, Barangay Lagtang, Talisay City last Friday evening.
In the initial investigation of the PIB, Raveno was described as new in the drug business. (JOB)
