Another suspected pusher was arrested by men of the Zamboanga City Public Safety Company in a motel in Sta. Maria last Wednesday afternoon.

Supt. William Gadayan, ZCPSC chief, identified the suspect as Hamja Asmad y Jalmaani alias Jay-Jay, 33, married, of Baliwasan Seaside.

Asmad was nabbed at Smile Travelers’ Inn around 4:20 p.m.

Gadayan disclosed that his men led by Sr. Insp. Joewie Bantoto Lucas confiscated from the suspect’s possession three sachets of shabu and P500 marked money.

A police report showed that Asmad agreed to meet with a police undercover agent at the said inn for a drug transaction.

When Asmad met the undercover agent, he handed a sachet of shabu to the latter in exchange of the marked money.

After the shabu and money changed hands, a police back-up team collared Asmad.

During inspection, lawmen recovered two more sachets of shabu from Asmad’s possession.

Asmad was detained at the central police station while the seized items were forwarded to the 9th PNP Crime Laboratory for examinations. – Dan Toribio Jr.
