Two suspects who were arrested for illegal drug possession were also reportedly found to possess fake currency during law enforcement operations conducted by police  in Tungawan Municipality, Zamboanga Sibugay last Thursday.

Chief Insp. Helen Galvez, Police Regional Office-9 Information Officer, identified the suspects as Mohammad Parsi Hamis y Yusop and Vanessa Hamis y Villegas.  Both are 33 years old and residents of Sitio Sinaburan, Barangay San Pedro.

The two were nabbed by police during law enforcement operations through service of search warrant at Purok Pineapplie, Sitio Sinaburan.

This is by virtue of a search warrant issued by the Regional Trial Court in Ipil, Zamboanga Sibugay.

Police were able to confiscate three sachets of suspected shabu, illegal drug paraphernalia and a weighing scale.

Authorities also discovered sixty-seven (67) pieces of fake five hundred peso bills in the possession of the suspects.

The suspects were placed under the custody of the Tungawan Municipal Police Station for proper disposition.  (Ely Dumaboc)
