MA­BAL­A­CAT CITY – A no­to­ri­ous drug ped­dler was nabbed by agents of Philip­pine Drug En­force­ment Agency Re­gion III (PDEA-3) in a drug sting beside­the Dau Cen­tral El­e­men­tary School, Barangay Dau of this city on Septem­ber 14, 2017.

In a re­port sub­mit­ted to PDEA Di­rec­tor Gen­eral Aaron N. Aquino, PDEA-3 Di­rec­tor Is­mael G. Fa­jardo Jr. iden­ti­fied the sus­pect as Doro­teo B. Tua­zon, alias TENG, 55, mar­ried, and a res­i­dent of 505 Roxas Street, Barangay Dau, Ma­bal­a­cat City.

Fa­jardo said that the sum­mary of in­for­ma­tion re­port (SOI) em­anated from in­for­ma­tion from the Pres­i­den­tial Com­plaint Cen­ter in Mala­canang Palace.

“This anti-drug op­er­a­tion was the re­sult of ac­tive in­volve­ment of the com­mu­nity and we would like to en­cour­age the peo­ple in the barangay to do the same. We en­cour­age them to be the eyes and ears of PDEA and PNP since they are the grass­roots and the first line of de­fense,” Fa­jardo added.
