NOVALICHES, QUEZON CITY — Women can be equally guilty in their involvement in criminality as discovered by operatives of the Novaliches Police Station (PS 4) of the Quezon City Police District (QCPD) under Lieutenant Colonel Richard Ian Ang who arrested two female druggies in a buy-bust operation Tuesday evening at a fast-food restaurant in Barangay Greater Fairview.
In his report to QCPD chief Brigadier General Danilo Macerin, Ang identified the female suspects as Noraima Midtimbang, alias Madam, 40, of Cruz Compound, Mathew Street, Multinational Village in Parañaque City; and Anna Acoy, alias Jenny, 25, of Parañaque Village, Bgy. San Isidro, also in Parañaque City.
On their arrest, Midtimbang and Acoy yielded some P850 thousand worth of shabu, a part of which they sold to a police poseur-buyer.
According to Ang, before the buy-bust operation was conducted, they received positive information from a confidential informant about the illegal drug peddling activities of the duo and they immediately organized a buy-bust operation at around 8 p.m. of April 6 in front of a parking lot near the fast-food restaurant located at Commonwealth Avenue in Bgy. Greater Fairview.
The undercover cop who posed as a drug buyer was able to buy from the two suspects P95,000 worth of illegal drugs and at a given pre-arranged signal, they were quickly arrested.
Aside from the buy-bust money and shabu (methamphetamine), seized from Midtimbang and Acoy were an identification card, a pouch, a shoulder bag, and a cellular phone used in the drug transaction. (AI/MTVN)
