Agents of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA)-9 have arrested nine persons, two of who are minors, during a drug buy-bust operation in Camino Nuevo last Wednesday.

PDEA Regional Director Lyndon Aspacio identified the suspects as Alsabrin Jainal y Dasalan, Almudhzar Dansalan y Vergara, Al-Amin Dacula y Abubakar, Jo Anthony Carpizo y Alfad, Anuar Alih y Ismael, Bakary Alam y Tajalain, Haider Salain y Abdurahim, Abukair Salain y Musa and Raymundo Montillano y Musa.

Two of the suspects are minors.

PDEA agents confiscated two kilos of dried marijuana leaves, P100 marked money, a weighing scale and a pair of scissors from the suspects.

The suspects were detained at the PDEA headquarters while the two minors were turned over to the Center for Children in Conflict with the Law in Culianan.

The seized items, meanwhile, were forwarded to the 9th PNP Crime Laboratory for examination.

PDEA investigators are preparing charges against the suspects in court.  (Dan Toribio)
