Operatives of the City Anti-illegal Drugs Special Operation Task Force led by Sr. Insp. Elmer Solon arrested a suspected shabu pusher at Calle Divino, Lunzuran last Thursday afternoon.

In his report to City Police Director Sr. Supt. Edwin De Ocampo, Solon identified the suspect as Melvin Pantaleta y Alvarez, 40, married.

Solon disclosed that the buy-bust operation was carried out around 3 p.m.

Investigation disclosed that Solon and his men carried out the buy-bust operation after Pantaleta agreed to sell a sachet of shabu to a police poseur buyer.

After Pantaleta handed to the poseur buyer a sachet of shabu in exchange of P300 marked money, Solon and a back-up team cornered and arrested him.

When frisked, Solon and his men recovered six more small sachets of shabu from the Pantaleta’s possession. — Dan Toribio Jr.
