AN ES­TI­MATED P51,000 worth of shabu or metham­phetamine hy­drochlo­ride was seized in sep­a­rate drug bust op­er­a­tions of Bacolod City Po­lice Of­fice (BCPO) in Bacolod City Satur­day.

The op­er­a­tions also led to the ar­rest of the two drug per­son­al­i­ties iden­ti­fied as Jes­sel May Jareta, and Ralph Daniel San­tos, both of Bacolod City.

Po­lice Lieu­tenant Colonel Ariel Pico, spokesper­son of BCPO, said Jareta was ar­rested by op­er­a­tives of Po­lice Sta­tion 10 af­ter she sold a sa­chet of shabu to a po­lice un­der­cover at Purok Sto. Domingo, Barangay Han­du­manan at about 1:46 p.m.

Po­lice re­cov­ered from Jareta’s pos­ses­sion seven sa­chets of shabu with es­ti­mated mar­ket value of P15,000, the marked money and a pouch.

Pico said that Jareta was a for­mer drug sur­ren­deree and was cat­e­go­rized as high value tar­get in the area of Po­lice Sta­tion 10.

San­tos, who was also a high value tar­get, was ar­rested by op­er­a­tives of Po­lice Sta­tion 2 at Purok Ka­gaykay, Barangay 2 at about 1:45 p.m.

Po­lice re­cov­ered from San­tos’s pos­ses­sion four sa­chets of shabu with es­ti­mated mar­ket value of P36,000, the marked money, and drug para­pher­na­lia.

The sus­pects are de­tained at the cus­to­dial fa­cil­i­ties of Po­lice Sta­tions 2 and 10 and are fac­ing charges for vi­o­la­tion of Repub­lic Act 9165 or the Com­pre­hen­sive Dan­ger­ous Drugs Act of 2002.*
