3 minors engaged in pot session in SRP nabbed

THREE young boys from Barangay Suba, Cebu City were apprehended by the police after they were caught engaging in a pot session at around 5:30 a.m. on Friday, March 15, 2024, along Bay Walk in South Road Properties (SRP), Barangay Sto. Niño, Cebu City.

The minor offenders with ages ranging from 15 to 17 are being held at the Waterfront Police Station.

They were apprehended by beat riders from the Cebu City Police Office (CCPO), patrolmen Alvan Ian Abarito, Jason Elardo, and John Kenneth Macaraya, who were doing the rounds.

The police officers noticed marijuana smoke emanating from the minors’ direction and went to speak with them before making an arrest.

The minors declined to give statements when interviewed by the media.

According to Lieutenant Colonel Janette Rafter, the deputy city director for operation of the CCPO, the kids can be charged, but doing so requires cooperation with the City Department of Social Welfare and Services.

CCPO Chief Colonel Ireneo Dalogdog commended his men for their string of accomplishments.

Recently, two police beat patrollers discovered a cellphone on Ramos Street and gave it back to its owner, who happened to be a media practitioner.

Last week, another police beat patrollers arrested a snatcher in downtown Cebu City's Manalili Street and two robbery suspects on a motorcycle in Barangay Mabolo.

According to Rafter, acknowledging police officers' positive deeds—no matter how small—will boost their morale. (AYB, TPT)
