Another evacuee staying at the Joaquin Enriquez Memorial Sports Complex was arrested in a shabu buy-bust operation Tuesday afternoon.

Nabbed was Siaku Hanta, married, of Rio Hondo. He was arrested by men of the Anti-illegal Special Operation Task Force under Supt. Diomarie Albarico around 5 p.m.

Recovered from Hanta’s possession were 11 sachets containing suspected shabu, a pouch, a sling bag and P300 marked money.

A police report disclosed that Hanta agreed to a drug deal with a police poseur buyer at 5 p.m.

When Hanta handed over the sachet of suspected shabu to the poseur buyer in exchange of the marked money, a police team cornered and arrested him.

The pouch recovered from Hanta’s possession contained 10 more sachets of suspected shabu.

Hanta was detained at the city police office while the seized items were forwarded to the 9th PNP Crime Laboratory for examination.

Several other evacuees had been arrested for peddling shabu in the past months. —  Dan Toribio Jr.
