The City Anti-Illegal Drugs Special Operations Task Force (CAIDSOTF) arrested a policeman in a buy-bust operation in this city the other day.

OIC City Police Director Sr. Supt. Angelito Casimiro identified the arrested policeman as PO2 Jeffrey Herbano, 37, detailed at the Regional Personnel Holding and Accounting Unit (RPHAU) based at Camp Abendan, this city.

Those detailed at the RPHAU are policemen who have just completed schooling and waiting for assignment orders.

Casimiro said Herbano was arrested in a buy-bust operation around 2:30 a.m. Tuesday in Barangay Canelar, this city.

Casimiro said Herbano was arrested by the CAIDSOTF personnel headed by Insp. Crisanto Yabo after he sold a sachet of shabu for P300 to an undercover policeman.

He said the arresting team recovered from Herbano’s possession three P100 “marked” bills, two sachets of suspected shabu, a caliber .45 pistol with 10 rounds of ammunition, and a motorcycle.

He said the arrested policeman was detained while appropriate charges are being readied against him. — TPG
