Six persons were arrested while P10,000 worth of shabu were seized in a buy-bust operation in Intramuros, Manila yesterday.
Police identified the suspects as Rosie “Neneng” Luban, 37; Eduardo Mendoza, 47; Joselito Ferrer, 25; Jonathan Ocenar, 24; Norhami Kanapia, 43, and Reynold Palti, 32.
Luban was arrested after selling 20 sachets or P10,000 worth of suspected shabu to a police poseur-buyer on Cabildo St.
Police raided the area and arrested Mendoza, Ferrer, and Ocenar for engaging in a pot session. Kanapia and Luban were arrested after police found suspected shabu in their possession.
PO2 Christopher Razon said the suspects were taken to the Manila Police District Station 5 prior to inquest proceedings at the Manila prosecutor’s office for violation of Republic Act 9165 or the Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002.
Shabu and drug paraphernalia seized from the suspects were taken to the Philippine National Police Crime Laboratory for examination. (Jenny F. Manongdo)
