BCPO hauls P180K in ‘shabu’

Sun Star Bacolod - - Top Stories -

THE Ba­colod City Po­lice Of­fice (BCPO) has ar­rested four drug per­son­al­i­ties and seized a to­tal of P180,000 worth of sus­pected shabu (metham­phetamine hy­drochlo­ride) in two sep­a­rate buy-bust op­er­a­tions in the city in two days.

One of the ar­rested sus­pects was the sis­ter of the late Western Visayas drug lord Ramy Poja.

Ruffa Poja, 26, was ar­rested in a drug bust at Purok Kawayanan in Barangay Ba­nago early Wed­nes­day.

The fe­male sus­pect yielded 10 sa­chets of sus­pected shabu worth P120,000, an im­pro­vised tooter, lighter, and the P500 marked money dur­ing the op­er­a­tion.

On Novem­ber 23, 21-year-old Chris­tian Vil­lar, third cousin of the late high-value tar­get, was ar­rested at the said vil­lage, which re­sulted to a re­cov­ery of 11 sa­chets of sus­pected shabu worth P500,200, the P1,000 marked money and drug para­pher­na­lia.

He is un­der the drugs watch­list of Po­lice Sta­tion 3.

Se­nior Su­per­in­ten­dent Fran­cisco Ebreo, act­ing BCPO di­rec­tor, said there are more drug per­son­al­i­ties that are emerg­ing but they con­tinue to val­i­date re­ports.

Ebreo said once a drug sus­pect or per­son­al­ity may be ar­rested, some­body re­places their il­le­gal ac­tiv­ity. “That’s why there are still some who con­tinue en­gag­ing in drugs, de­spite the po­lice’s ac­tion against them.”

Mean­while, on Novem­ber 27, op­er­a­tives of the City Drug En­force­ment Unit (CDEU) ar­rested streetlevel tar­get Jo­eremy Dio­cades, 38, of Si­lay City; Bel­tran Sono­rio, 54, of Barangay Bata; and Jet Mark Abello, 25, of Cadiz City, af­ter po­lice seized from them eight sa­chets of sus­pected shabu worth P60,000, and the P1,000 marked money./gym
