Agents of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA)  raided a drug den at Gov. Camins Avenue last Wednesday night and arrested six suspected shabu pushers and users.

PDEA Regional Director Supt. Adzhar Albani identified those arrested as Jojaira Caingoy, Arleigh Antonio, Candido Ebol, Romel Aragon, Noel Tagata and Leo Patrick Cabatu.

Confiscated from the possession of those arrested were sachets of shabu, several drug paraphernalia and marked money.

The raid and buy-bust operation was carried out around 6 p.m. after the PDEA agents discovered that the suspects were selling shabu at the said place.
A certain Joseph Pamaran eluded arrest during the raid, PDEA said.

Albani said the seized items were forwarded to the 9th PNP Crime Laboratory for examination.

Those arrested were detained at the PDEA headquarters.

Charges have been prepared against the suspects.
