Drug bust nets Dipolog pusher

THE police have arrested a suspected big-time drug pusher and seized methamphetamine hydrochloride (locally known as shabu) worth P50,000 from his possession in Dipolog City.

Superintendent Rogelio Alabata, Police Regional Office-Zamboanga Peninsula spokesman, identified the arrested suspect as Jhuvis Jumawan, 37, a resident of Katipunan, R.T. Lim, Zamboanga Sibugay.

Alabata said Jumawan was arrested in a drug bust around 8 p.m. Friday at a lodging house in the village of Sicayab, Dipolog City.

Alabata said the arresting team confiscated from Jumawan’s possession three sachets of shabu, the drug bust money, some cash believed to be proceeds in the illegal drug trade, a mobile phone and other drug paraphernalia.

He said the confiscated shabu weighs around 10 grams with an estimated market value of P50,000.

The drug bust was carried out following a tip on the suspect’s alleged illegal drug trade. (Bong Garcia )
