Black Saturday sting yields P500,000 worth of illegal drugs

THE long holidays did not stop authorities from implementing the law as a high-value target was arrested during an anti-illegal drug operation launched on Black Saturday, April 16, 2022, in Mabalacat City.

The arrested suspect was identified as Bernie "Boss" Dela Cruz, a 41-year-old Sputnik Gang Member and a resident of Santa Rita town.

Prior to his arrest, Dela Cruz was just out of prison for nearly a month as authorities said he was just released in March 2022.

Seized from the suspect were two knot-tied plastic sachets and five small plastic sachets containing 75 grams of suspected methamphetamine hydrochloride amounting to P510,000; the buy-bust money and other pieces of evidence.

Complaints for violation of Republic Act 9165 or Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002 will be filed before the Mabalacat City Prosecutors Office.
