The alleged supplier of a downtown shabu pusher who was arrested during a raid on Wednesday in his house at Alvarez Compound, Pilar St., was also collared hours later in Veterans Avenue.

Farhana Turabin, 37, of Sto. Nino, Putik, was nabbed by a police team led by Chief Insp. Edilberto Alvarez and Sr. Insp. Elmer Solon in a entrapment operation after the raid was carried out at the house of Eric Wee where several sachets containing shabu and drug paraphernalia were recovered from his bedroom.

After he was arrested, Wee was called by Turabin via cellphone and policemen instructed him to pretend to order more shabu from her.

Turabin set a place for she and Wee to meet near a hospital along Veterans Avenue.

When Turabin was collared, police recovered from her two big and nine smallsize sachets containing shabu.

Wee’s arrest came after a month-long police surveillance. The raid at his house was carried out on the strength of search warrant issued by Judge Eric Elumba of the Regional Trial Court Branch 13.

Wee told this reporter that he has been selling and using shabu at their residence.

He said that often times his customers used to have shabu session inside his bedroom.

Police said before the raid, they had conducted surveillance operations for one month followed by a “test buy” to confirm that there is drug trade activities.

Reports said  that some parents of female teenagers have filed complaints with the police against Wee for allegedly using minor in sex activities. —  Dan Toribio
