A fighting cock breeder, who was nabbed in a buy-bust operation Monday afternoon at a parking lot of Gaisano City Mall in Bacolod City, was charged yesterday for violation of the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002, before the Bacolod City Prosecutor’s Office.
Director Paul Ledesma, of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency-Region 6, said the charges for the sale and possession of illegal drugs were filed against Edgardo Justo, alias “Rey Roman”, 36, of Brgy. Santa Cruz in Murcia, Negros Occidental, who also owns a cock farm in the town.
Ledesma told the DAILY STAR that the seized white crystalline substance weighing 994.4568 grams was determined to be methamphetamine hydrochloride, or shabu, in the tests conducted by the Provincial Crime Laboratory.
