Security officers of the Western Mindanao State University arrested a male college student for the possession of a sachet of marijuana leaves last Sunday morning.

The police report identified the student as Jose Abelardo Barrios y Kawili, 24, married and a resident of Tumaga Porcentro.

Police said that around 9:47 a.m. Barrios entered the premises of the university and while security personnel, Flaviano Biya y Romano, 54 and Joven Aripuddin y Mangona, 43, were checking his school identification card they noticed that something fell from the student.

One of the guards picked it up and to his surprise it was a sachet containing dried marijuana leaves. During the interrogation the suspect admitted that it belongs to him.

The two guards  then immediately brought the suspect to the police station along with the confiscated  sachet containing dried marijuana leaves.

Barrios is now detained at the Central Police Station while the seized marijuana has already been forwarded to the 9th PNP Crime Laboratory for examinations.

Police have readied charges against Barrios in the City Prosecutor’s Office. – Dan Toribio
