A cohort of Binladen, the notorious and elusive drug pusher of Recodo, was arrested in a police and military operation in Upper Calarian last Thursday afternoon.
Arrested was Dascal Kahal y Ballion, 36, of Purok 3B, Recodo. He was tagged as a  cohort of Margani Samla alias Binladen, who is wanted by the law.
Kahal was collared at a military checkpoint in Upper Calarian as he was being chased policemen.

Police had earlier received an information that Samla was spotted downtown aboard a black Hyundai Atos car with plate number JEB 573.

Operatives of the different police units and Zamboanga City Public Safety Company conducted a hot pursuit operation that resulted in a chase.

The chase went up to Upper Calarian where the vehicle of Samla was stopped at a military checkpoint.

However, Samla was able to escape while his driver Kahal was arrested.

Kahal was detained at the central police station.

Report disclosed Samla was plotting to kill a police official.

Samla’s group and its shabu “tiangge” based in Recodo were dismantled after a series of police and military operations several months ago. Several of  Samla’s men were arrested and large volume of shabu and paraphernalia were confiscated.   

Samla is the over-all leader of the Recodo drug syndicate. – Dan Toribio Jr.
