A woman was nabbed for posession of drug paraphernalia during an internal security operation (ISO) carried out by men of the Zamboanga City Public Safety Company under Supt. Ariel Huesca in Recodo last Sunday afternoon.

Arrested was Mary Ann Francisco y Ilan, 18, single, of San Roque.

Huescasaid Francisco was spotted by a police team acting suspiciously and upon verification, lawmen recovered drug paraphernalia from her possession.

The woman was taken to the city police office for investigation.

Huesca and his men together with a team from the Ayala Police Station swooped down on Recodo last Sunday as part of the police’s anti-crime operations.

Huesca said he and his men observed that most houses in the drug-infested part of Recodo were padlocked.

He said that connived with drug pushers and hide them in the area whenever police raiders come.

“Ambot” or “Inday ko” were the common answers of many residents when Huesca and his men asked them on the whereabouts of their target lawless people in the area.

In previous similar operations conducted by Huesca and his men, several persons involved in drug activities were arrested, while shabu and drug paraphernalia were confiscated.

Recodo is now infamously called the shabu capital of Zamboanga City.— Dan Toribio
