A barangay kagawad is the latest to fall in the city’s crackdown on illegal drugs that is part of the national efforts to fight against the drug menace.

Erico Rivera y Estrada, 42, of Estrada Drive, Mampang, was arrested during a buy-bust operation last Saturday night by men of the Tetuan Police Station led by Supt. Nonito Asdai around 6:30 p.m. at Gaganao Cruz Drive, Mampang.

Asdai and his men confiscated from Rivera’s possession a .45 caliber pistol, with a magazine loaded with four rounds of ammunition, three sachets of shabu, P300 marked money and a cell phone.

Rivera was detained while the seized items were forwarded to the 9th PNP Crime Laboratory for examination.

Police have readied charges against the kagawad for violation of Sections 5 and 11 of Republic Act 9165. – Dan Toribio
