P4.5M in shabu
seized in Cadiz

About P4.5 million worth of suspected shabu was seized by agents of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency during a raid in front of a pension house at Villena Street, Laura compound in Cadiz City, Negros Occidental, at about 5 p.m. yesterday.

A big heat-sealed transparent sachet of suspected shabu, weighing about 500 to 600 grams, was recovered from Jonathan Badilles, after his arrest, PDEA Intelligence Agent 1 John Carlo Daquiado said.

However, the companion of Badilles, identified as Kurt Reylan Majarucon, escaped after he handed to the police poseur-buyer, a small heat-sealed plastic sachet of suspected shabu, in exchange for P500 in marked money, Daquiado said.moremoremore

Ayalin now Most-wanted in WVisayas

Fugitive former Silay barangay captain Noel Ayalin, who is facing multiple murder and attempted murder cases, is now the number one most- wanted person in the list of the Police Regional Office 6 in Western Visayas.

Ayalin has been charged for the massacre of barangay officials in Brgy. Kapitan Ramon, Silay City, in 2011.

The shooting spree of Ayalin on March 6, 2011, claimed the lives of four barangay officials, including a chairwoman of the Sangguniang Kabataan Federation, and caused injuries to three other officials, among them the incumbent barangay captain, Ramon Celebre, police records show.moremoremore

Bing backs move
for island-region

There is wisdom in establishing a one-island region for Negros, Bacolod Rep. Evelio “Bing” Leonardia said, and he will do whatever is necessary to help create it.

“I am talking from experience,” Leonardia said, “a Negros region will accelerate our development.”

The Bacolod solon said he realized the importance of a one-island region when he was still the provincial tourism officer of Negros Occidental in the ‘80s.

“From our work in tourism, I realized how much faster and more efficient things would be if the entire island belonged to one region. This was especially evident in the area of promotions,” he added. “It would be a lot more effective and efficient if we promoted the entire island together.”moremoremore
