A man who trespassed and slept on someone else’s house was arrested for illegal drugs by city cops after they found sachets of suspected shabu, Thursday evening.
P/Maj. Lorence Bataller, Station Commander of Police Station 1 identified the suspect as Raul Gadia Hombrog, 47 years old from Barangay San Miguel.
Bataller said that upon receiving a report about a drunk man trespassed and slept in a house in Barangay Bancao-Bancao, the team immediately responded
“Bago po natin naaresto, naitawag po sa atin, na may taong nakapasok sa loob ng tahanan, sa bahay po sa barangay Bancao-Bancao. Nagresponde po ang mga barangay tanod at ‘yon nga itinawag po sa atin, naabutan nga na nakahandusay sa loob,” he said.
The operatives found four sachets of suspected shabu.
“Yon nga noong sinearch natin, kinap-kapan natin, may nakitang pinaghihinalaang ilegal droga sa kanya, apat na piraso, pagkatapos noon inaresto po natin siya,” Bataller said.
Along with the sachets of suspected shabu, the team was able to confiscate one unit of Samsung phone, one lighter, one matchbox and cash amounting P3,711.
Bataller also added that during the arrest of the suspect, he was still under the influence of alcohol and other possible substances.
“Iba ‘yong kaniyang kinikilos. Tingin namin lango siya sa alak o sa ipinagbabawal na gamot. Para makasiguro, pina-drug test na namin siya,” he said.
