Au­thor­i­ties on Mon­day, Jan­uary 7, have seized more than half mil­lion pe­sos worth of sus­pected il­le­gal drugs and ar­rested a drug sus­pect in Opol, Misamis Ori­en­tal.

Mem­bers of the Re­gional Drug En­force­ment Unit (RDEU-10) and Opol anti-il­le­gal drug op­er­a­tives car­ried out a drug buy-bust and nabbed the tar­get iden­ti­fied as Ed­mund Pines alias “Mon”.

Po­lice said the sus­pect did not re­sist ar­rest com­pared to those who were pre­vi­ously killed for fight­ing back (nan­laan) against the op­er­a­tives.

Con­fis­cated from his pos­ses­sion were five sa­chets of sus­pected shabu (Metham­phetamine hy­drochlo­ride) in dif­fer­ent sizes weigh­ing about 80 grams and worth around P640,000.

Seized items were brought to the crime lab­o­ra­tory for ex­am­i­na­tion.

The sus­pect is now de­tained and will face charges for vi­o­la­tion of the Com­pre­hen­sive Dan­ger­ous Drugs Act.
