A jobless man who tried to set on fire of his neighbors houses was arrested by authorities following a complaint by residents Thursday evening in Makati City.

Earlier at around 9 p.m., Erick Estira, 31, Arsenio Estira 45, both  of  425 Tanguile St. and Jaylord Dimayuga, 42, of 420-H Tanguile St., Bgy.

PO1 Agapito Ricablanca and PO1 Jay Geronimo immediately responded to the area and recovered the lighter and the LPG while the suspect immediately ran inside his house and locked himself inside the bathroom.

Meanwhile, authorities seized at least 79 pieces of heat-sealed transparent plastic sachets of shabu worth P50.000 from a 48-year-old woman in a buy-bust operation Thursday evening in Pasay City.
