MANILA – The Quezon City police arrested Wednesday a big-time drug peddler and seized from him around PHP3.4 million worth of suspected shabu.
Novaliches police station commander Lt. Col. Jerry Castillo identified the suspect as Bryan Santos, a resident of Barangay Sta. Lucia, Novaliches.
The Novaliches police arrested Santos in Barangay Gulod in a buy-bust operation conducted in coordination with the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency.
Seized from the suspect were 500 grams of suspected shabu, one green sling bag, a cellular phone and the buy-bust money.
The suspect will be charged for violation of Republic Act 9165, otherwise known as the “Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002”, before the Quezon City Prosecutor’s Office.
“I commend Novaliches police station for their unrelenting efforts on the campaign against illegal drugs which resulted in the arrest of the suspect and confiscation of evidence. Ipagpatuloy lang natin ang masigasig na pagpapatupad laban sa kriminalidad lalo na ang illegal na droga upang protektahan ang mamamayan dito sa ating lungsod (Let’s just continue the relentless law enforcement against criminality, especially against illegal drugs, to protect the citizens of our city),” said Quezon City Police District director, Brig.
