The police poseur buyer had successfully handed the five hundred peso bill marked money incorporated in boodle money in exchange of shabu to Asis however the duo noticed the presence of the operatives and immediately they scampered.

Arnibal fled away while Asis was cornered inside a house where the four other suspects are having pot session and were eventually apprehended.

Seized from the suspects were three other sachet of heat sealed plastic containing undetermined suspected shabu, drug paraphernalia (four disposable lighters, two aluminum foil strips), one improvised shotgun and two pieces 12 gauge shot gun ammunition.

In another DAIDSOTG buy bust operation, suspect Rhoneil Lopez, a call center agent moonlighting in drug sale was arrested after the operatives received reports on his illegal activity.

He was arrested on April 13, 2015 at about 10:00pm at a parking area of Shell Gasoline Station, along Don Antonio Hts. Extension, Brgy., Old Balara, Quezon City where a knot tied transparent plastic containing suspected shabu and the one thousand peso bill marked money incorporated in boodle money amounting Php 100,000.00 were seized in his possession.

Another buy bust operation was also conducted against suspect Rodel Labadan alias “Zaldy” at about 5:30pm, April 13, 2015 along Geronimo St. Brgy Santa Monica, Novaliches, Quezon City.

Report showed that Zaldy is included in the top priority list of Barangay Anti-Drug Abuse Council (BADAC) in the jurisdiction of Novaliches Police Station (PS-4).

Confiscated from him were three (3) heat sealed transparent plastic containing suspected shabu and the Php 300.00 marked money.

Meanwhile the anti-illegal drugs operatives of Masambong Police Station (PS-2) responded to a telephone call of a concerned citizen regarding to a pot session involving Benson, Lucidos and Delasan.

The three were arrested at about 1:00am April 14, 2015 at # 41 Santiago St. Barangay San Antonio, Quezon City and confiscated from them were two heat sealed plastic containing suspected shabu, an improvised burner, a piece of aluminum foil, one unsealed plastic sachet containing traces of suspected shabu, a disposable lighter and a glass pipe.

The ten arrested suspects will be charged for violation of RA 9165 (Comprehensive Drugs Act 0f 2002), however a separate case for violation of RA 10591 (Laws of Firearms and Ammunition) will be charge against the group of Asis.

PCSupt Pagdilao commended the operatives for these accomplishments and said that these are part of QCPD’s implementation of “Oplan Lambat Sibat” as ordered by SILG Mar Roxas and Mayor Herbert Bautista and through the usual support of the Quezon City Anti-Drug Abuse Advisory Council (QCDACC) headed Vice Mayor Josefina “Joy” Belmonte.
