THE Drug Enforcement Team (DET) and Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) arrested a laborer and a guest usherette during anti-illegal drug operation in Bgy. Tadlac, Los Baños, Laguna, yesterday morning.
Police Regional office 4A director Chief Supt. Edward Carranza identified the suspects as Dolorfino Laspuña, 33, laborer, of Purok 1, Bgy. Tadlac, Los Baños, and Jorlyn Yong, 26, guest usherette, of Purok 1, Bgy. Hanggan, Calauan, Laguna.
Around 1:15 a.m., PDEA 4A and a DET team led by Chief Insp. Edmond Capistrano, under the direct supervision of Supt. Louie Dionglay, Los Baños police chief, arrested the suspects.
During the operation, the suspects conspired with each other to sell a plastic sachet of suspected shabu to police poseur-buyer in exchange for P500 in marked money which resulted in their immediate arrest.
Dring frisking, Laspuña yielded four transparent plastic sachets of suspected shabu, P500 in buy-bust money and three pieces of P100 bills. The recovered drug evidence were worth about P2,500.
The arrested suspects and the pieces of evidence were brought to Los Baños police for proper disposition and later to Regional Crime Laboratory Office (RCLO) 4A at Camp Vi-cente Lim, Calamba City for drug test and laboratory examination.
Charges for violation of Secs. 5, 11 and 26, Art. 2, RA 9165 will be filed against the suspects before the Prosecutor’s Office.
