Korean-American caught with ecstasy

Police have arrested a Korean- American after he yielded ecstasy tablets during a drug-bust in Pasay City on Wednesday night.

Senior Supt. Graciano Mijares, commander of the police’s Drug Enforcement Group (DEG), said they immediately mapped out a buy-bust after one of his men was able to contact suspect Jun No for a purchase of the prohibited party drug.

No, an American citizen with Korean descent, is reportedly one of the sources of ecstasy tablets in southern part of Metro Manila.

The cops then met with No at the parking lot of a popular mall in Pasay City and announced the arrest at around 9:30 p.m.

Seized from No were at least 140 ecstasy tablets.

Mijares said No will be charged with violation of Section 5 (Trading, Administration, Dispensation, Delivery, Distribution and Transportation of Dangerous Drugs and/or Controlled Precursors and Essential Chemicals) of Republic Act 9165 or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002.

No was taken to the Pasay City Prosecutor’s Office yesterday for the filing of the case. (AARON B. RECUENCO)
