This town’s chief of po­lice Su­per­in­ten­dent Dale Soliba iden­ti­fied the sus­pects as Mario Al­mas and Romi­lyn Bala­ja­dia, both res­i­dents of this town.

Soliba said that the two sus­pects have been un­der the sur­veil­lance of po­lice au­thor­i­ties for their al­leged in­volve­ment in the pro­lif­er­a­tion of il­le­gal drugs in Arayat and other towns.

The two sus­pects were charged for vi­o­la­tion of RA 9165 or the Com­pre­hen­sive Dan­ger­ous Drugs Act, and are cur­rently de­tained at this town’s po­lice de­ten­tion fa­cil­ity.
