A resident of Kalye Pogi, Barangay Tiniguiban believed to be involved in drug peddling was arrested Monday evening in a buy-bust operation.
Ian Nuñez, 33, was arrested at the national highway in Tiniguiban, a spot report from the regional office of the police said.
Confiscated from him were a piece of a heat-sealed plastic sachet with suspected shabu and the P1,400 marked money.
P/Maj. Edgar Salazar, station commander of Station 2, said Nuñez was also previously arrested for selling illegal drugs.
“Nahuli na ito dati, nakulong ito ng 2015 at nakalaya siya nitong March lang. Ilang buwan na namin siyang minamanmanan simula ng malaman namin na lumabas ‘yan binabantayan namin ‘yan kung nagbago o hindi. So na found out namin na ganoon pa rin ang sistema niya, nakakuha kami ng time na maka-transact namin siya at ‘yon lumabas na nagbebenta pa rin siya ng drugs,” he said.
The suspect will be facing a case for violating Republic Act 9165 or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act.
