FOUR drug pushers were caught in a drug bust at Sitio Rattan, Barangay Tangke, Talisay City, Cebu.

Noel Macaraya, who earlier surrendered through Oplan Tokhang and admitted that he is a drug pusher, was arrested Tuesday, August 23, together with his associate Reynaldo Racaza. Police said Macaraya is still actively selling methamphetamine hydrochloride, locally known as shabu.

Police recovered from the suspects four large sachets of suspected shabu and three other small sachets of the illegal drug.

Another person, identified as Clifford Serenobis, was also caught hiding in Macaraya's pig pen. Police seized from his possession two large sachets of shabu.

The shabu that were recovered from Macaraya, Serenobis and Racaza are worth P290,000, said the police.

An hour later, policemen also arrested Narsel Hoybia, alias Opao, who is on the drugs watchlist of the Talisay City Police Station.

Hoybia's house is just 50 meters away from Macaraya's.

Police recovered from Hoybia 92 small sachets of suspected shabu worth P202,000. (Tovya Kaiko Galeon, USJR intern/Sunnex)
