EIGHT drug sus­pects were ar­rested in sep­a­rate anti- drug op­er­a­tions in a span of six hours, in Taguig City over the week­end.

Taguig Po­lice Sub- In­spec­tor Glen Am­si­wen said the first three sus­pects, Ade­lon Lu­de­nio, Randy Al­tar and Jimmy Balasan­gay, were ar­rested dur­ing an op­er­a­tion in Barangay South Daang Hari at 8: 30 p. m on Satur­day.

Rom­mel Ipil was ar­rested in the same barangay at 11: 45 pm. Po­lice seized four sa­chets of shabu from the sus­pect.

They will be charged for vi­o­la­tion of Repub­lic Act 9165 or the Com­pre­hen­sive Dan­ger­ous Drugs Act of 2002 be­fore the Taguig City Pros­e­cu­tors Of­fice.
