Two former soldiers were charged in court after they were arrested during a buy-bust operation conducted by the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency 9 (PDEA9) in Upper Calarian.

PDEA Regional Director Lyndon Aspacio identified the suspects as Rodolfo Giovanni Haron y Daung alias Kon-Kon, 36, separated, a former Army personnel and Muin Jumadil y Alawaddin alias Mike, 43, married, and an ex-Marine. Both are residents of Upper Calarian.

Aspacio said that his team confiscated  8 sachets of shabu with a market value of P4,000 and the P300 marked money from the men.

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

Meanwhile, the suspects were taken to the City Prosecutor’s Office for an inquest proceeding for violation of sections 5 and 11 of  Republic Act 9165.

The suspects availed of the 15-day waiver and were re-detained at the PDEA headquarter. (Dan Toribio)
