Police arrested and detained five persons, including two women, for violation of RA 9165, or the Comprehensive Drug Act of 2002, in Binalbagan, Negros Occidental Friday.
Suspected drug peddler Julius Londres was arrested by a police team led by Senior Inspector Albert Sy during a buy-bust operation in Brgy. Enclaro, Binalbagan.
Sy, who is the Binalbagan police chief, said yesterday that the arrest of Londres, 34, yielded two sticks of suspected marijuana cigarets and P50 in marked money.
The police also recovered 40 pieces of suspected marijuana cigarets, an improvised tooter with traces of suspected shabu, an improvised gun, P60 in cash and a disposable lighter during the arrest.
Sy said they also arrested Leonora Londres,29, of Brgy. Enclaro, Binalbagan, the sister of Julius, Mae Ann Llenos,32, of Brgy. Punta Taytay, Bacolod City, and Loreto Aldea,22, of Brgy. Aguisan, Himamaylan City.
Llenos is the live-in partner of Julius.
He added that Leonara, Aldea and Llenos were arrested for visiting a drug den. Additional charges will be filed against them if they test positive for the use of prohibited drugs.
Another police team led by PO1 Francis Alicante, while on covert operations against illegal activities in Brgy. San Teodoro, Binalbagan, also arrested Arnel Decin, 42, for having an improvised tooter and traces of suspected shabu placed inside a pentel pen canister.
The five arrested suspects are now detained at the Binalbagan police jail.
Meanwhile charges for violation of Sections 5 and 11 of RA 9165 have been filed by the police against Dennis Britania, alias Nonoy Pal-al, who was arrested July 18 by the police during a buy-bust operation in Sitio Berano, Brgy. Lantad, Silay City.
