In Barangay Kinasang-an, eight persons were arrested when the authorities raided a drug den at around 1:30 p.m. on Friday, March 1, 2024.

Three of them were former surrenderers and had already completed the Community-Based Drug Rehabilitation Program (CBDRP).

Seized from them were 11 packs of suspected shabu totaling 11 grams and valued at P74,800, buy-bust money and drug paraphernalia.

At 4:06 p.m., a buy-bust in Brangay Suba resulted in the arrest of another drug suspect Joemari Tagalog, 30, a former drug surrenderer who was on PDEA’s target list.

Taken from him were eight large packs of alleged shabu weighing 30 grams and estimated to be worth P204,000, buy-bust money and drug paraphernalia.
