The Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) has arrested a minor and four other drug suspects during a drug buy bust operation in barangay Talon Talon last Saturday.

PDEA Regional Director Lyndon Aspacio, CESE, identified the arrested persons as Gailvertito Alferez Bolo alias Poloy, Joselito Voaska Pahajom, Alfred Ucap Climaco and Joel Paragas Gatilogo.

PDEA agents confiscated from their possession three sachets of suspected shabu worth P3,000, P200 marked money, one sachet containing suspected shabu residue, four aluminum foils and drug paraphernalia.

The suspects were detained at the PDEA headquarters while the seized items were turned over to the PDEA Crime Laboratory for examination.

Aspacio said that the suspects will be charged for violation of Sections 5,6,11,12 and 15 of  Republic Act 9165.

Meanwhile, policemen of the Dipolog City Police Station and agents of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency arrested Marlon Aton Siason, 39, of Airport Drive, Minaog, Dipolog City during an entrapment operation last Sunday morning.

Siason was arrested at the RTMI compound at around 8:30 a.m.

Police were able to confiscate six heat-sealed transparent plastic sachets containing suspected shabu, a pair of rubber shoes, one black leather wallet containing assorted Identification cards and P580 cash in different denominations.

The entrapment operation was launched after lawmen received a report that Siason was at the RTMI compound to get a small baggage containing drugs coming from Ozamis City aboard a passenger bus.

The suspect was detained pending the filing of charges in court.  (Dan Toribio)
