October 06, 2018

FIVE known drug personalities were arrested by agents of the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao Police Regional Office following separate anti-narcotics operations this week which led in the confiscation of over P2 million worth of shabu, ARMM police director, Chief Superintendent Graciano J. Mijares said yesterday.

Two of the suspects identified as Sammy Ali Panalangin, 26; and Mohamidin Ambak Sandigo, 28, were arrested while conspiring to sell some 250 grams of shabu worth P1.9 million to an undercover officer along the national highway in Barangay Kurintem, Datu Odin Sinsuat in Maguindanao last Wednesday.

Mijares described the two as ‘high-value’ drug targets in ARMM who have long been under surveillance by the local police for their involvement in big-time drug trafficking activities.
