2 drug pushers nabbed in Bulacan
Street pushers in this booming city have turned into falling dominoes as the city police anti-narcotics division continues to put the heat against violators of the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act.
Superintendent Fitz Macariola, city police chief, on Sunday reported to Bulacan acting police director Senior Superintendent Romeo Caramat Jr., that two street level pushers and four more drug users were arrested in a series of anti-drug operations in Barangay Gumaok East and Barangay Minuyan Proper here Saturday night.
Macariola identified the arrested drug dealers as Rafael Valencia, 39, resident of Barangay Gumaok East in this city and Jay Cardenas alias “Budoy”, resident of Sitio Quarry, Barangay Minuyan Proper here.
Four other suspects who were caught in the act of sniffing shabu inside a suspected drug den were also arrested.
Macariola identified them as Rene Pecaso, Silvino Sabido, Mark Anthony Patricio and Rodolfo Santos.
Valencia was first to fall when he was arrested by a police undercover agent during a buy-bust operation in Barangay Gumaok East.
He said City Drug Enforcement Unit (CDEU) agents recovered a plastic sachet of suspected shabu, the marked money used in the buy-bust operation, another sachet containing suspected marijuana and drug paraphernalia from Valencia.
In Barangay Minuyan Proper, intelligence operatives of the CDEU, in coordination with the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA), conducted anti-drug operation in a suspected drug den and arrested suspected drug dealer Cardenas after selling a plastic sachet of shabu to a CDEU agent.
Macariola said the deal was consummated in the suspected drug den where four male persons were caught in the act of sniffing shabu and were subsequently arrested along with Cardenas.
Appropriate charges will be filed against the arrested suspects, Macariola said.
