Seven drug suspects were arrested in different anti-illegal drug operations conducted by police drug enforcement units in Caraga region on Friday and Saturday.
Chief Supt. Rolando B. Felix, regional director of Northeastern Mindanao Police Regional Office 13 (PRO 13), identified the arrested alleged drug suspects as Napoleon Tamayo in Barangay Cahayagan, Carmen, Agusan del Norte, and Danilo Momo in Barangay Awasian, Tandag City. Confiscated from the suspects were three sachets of shabu (methamphetamine) weighing .5 grams with street value of P6,000 and drug paraphernalia. Operatives also confiscated an undocumented cal. 9mm from Momo.
Another suspect, a disc jockey (DJ), identified as Honeybee Entero, was also arrested through a buy-bust operation in Barangay Kapatungan, Trento, Agusan del Sur. Operatives seized 0.04 grams of shabu valued at P500, a P500 marked money and some drug paraphernalia, the region’s police chief said.
Another buy-bust operation by operatives from Caraga Police Drug Enforcement Unit and Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA 13) also led to the arrest of suspects Geldred Delos Santos and Mico Dumapig in Barangay Bading, Butuan City, he said.
“Upon sensing that his customer was our poseur buyer, Dumapig tried to exchange fire using his loose firearm but the undercover agent retaliated. He was then brought to the hospital due to his gunshot wound while his cohort, Delos Santos, was also arrested from the crime scene,” said Felix.
The newly identified drug suspects yielded 16 grams of shabu with street value of P188,000 and a caliber .38 revolver, Felix said.
Another separate buy-bust operation was also staged in Barangay 1 San Francisco, Agusan del Sur where operatives also arrested suspects Edgar Libarde and Kimberly Mae Bernardino allegedly possessing 2 grams of shabu worth P23,600, he said.
“The arrested suspects are facing charges for violation of Comprehensive Dangerous Drug Act of 2002 and illegal possession of firearms,” Felix added.
Meanwhile, police operatives also conducted manhunt operations across the region against wanted persons on Thursday, Friday and Saturday that resulted in the arrest of Kembie Betonio in Barangay Amontay, San Francisco, Surigao del Norte, and Joebert Leyson in Prosperidad, Agusan del Sur for the alleged crime of murder; Rolando Guimare in Barangay Pag-Antayan, Cantilan Surigao del Sur for allegedly committing Violence against Women and Children Act of 2004 (VAWC); and Abraham Labaniego in Barangay 2, San Francisco, Agusan del Sur for alleged reckless imprudence resulting in slight physical injury and damage to property.
