Men of the Sangali Police Station arrested a man and his wife during a drug buy-bust operation Wednesday afternoon.

Sr. Insp. Joel Tuttuh identified those arrested as Many Mustapha y Kalulong, 43, and his wife Myra Butucan y Maulana, 31, of Sitio Kanya, Sangali.

Recovered from the couple’s possession were eight medium size sachets containing suspected shabu, P500 marked money and several drug paraphernalia.

The suspects were detained at the Sangali Police Station while the seized items were forwarded to the 9th PNP Crime Laboratory for examination.

Police said they had received reports on the couple’s drug peddling in the area. A surveillance confirmed the report.

A police poseur buyer agreed to meet the couple for a drug transaction in which he ordered shabu worth P500.

The suspects met the poseur buyer and the former were arrested after they handed over a sachet of shabu in exchange of P500. – Dan Toribio Jr.
