A to­tal of P4.5 mil­lion worth of il­le­gal drugs were con­fis­cated from three ar­rested sus­pects in two dif­fer­ent buy-bust op­er­a­tions con­ducted in barangays Bu­la­cao and Te­jero, Cebu City late evening Thurs­day.

The lat­est buy- bust oper­a­tion in Si­tio IKPYO Da­clan, Vil­lagon­zalo II, Te­jero re­sulted in the ar­rest a cer­tain Ray­mond Doniza, 22, a high-value in­di­vid­ual, and a 17-year old boy.

The es­ti­mated to­tal weight of shabu con­fis­cated were 100 grams with a value of P680,000.

At around 2:10 p.m. in the same day, el­e­ments of Pardo Po­lice Sta­tion con­ducted a buy-bust oper­a­tion in Si­tio Paglaum, Bu­la­cao that re­sulted into the ar­rest of a cer­tain Mar­ios Leonardo, 42, a res­i­dent of Lawaan 1, Tal­isay City.

The con­fis­cated shabu has a to­tal weight of 575.6 grams with an es­ti­mated value of P3.9 mil­lion.

Fol­low­ing the se­ries of buy-bust op­er­a­tions, Cebu City Po­lice Of­fice direc­tor, Po­lice Colonel Josefino Li­gan, is set to meet with the of­fi­cers of the Bureau of Jail Man­age­ment and Penol­ogy to be able to ad­dress al­leged con­tacts of il­le­gal drugs be­ing done in­side the city jail.

New re­cruits of Rus­tico Ygot group who were ar­rested in a se­ries of buy-bust op­er­a­tions this week re­port­edly dis­closed that their con­tacts are in­side the city jails.

There is no spe­cific date yet for the meet­ing next week but Li­gan said that one of the main points is to find out who are these in­di­vid­u­als in­side the jails.

“Daghan nga mga in­for­ma­tion nga ang trans­ac­tion is still from the in­side. We will talk how to ad­dress that con­cern. Ap­par­ently naa gyud chance nga ang naa sa su­lod mag­a­mit and makatawag gamit ang tele­pono,” said Li­gan.

Li­gan added that now is the time to come up with plans that would cut off the modus used by the il­le­gal drug groups.

“Para ma­pahi­mangno namo sa city jail kung kinsa ning mga tawhana nga maoy maka-trans­act,” said Li­gan. — Iris Hazel M. Mas­cardo/GMR
