Dipolog City - More than 50 suspected drug pushers were arrested in Zamboanga del Norte and the cities of Dipolog and Dapitan from January to July this year.
This was disclosed by PDEA provincial office chief Jury Rocamora. He said appropriate charges have already been filed against these suspects in court.
PDEA also said the illegal drugs peddled in the province usually came from Ozamis City. “Some of these illegal drugs reportedly found their way to the province through bus drivers, inspectors or conductors who were used as drug couriers."
In a related development, another suspected drug pusher fell in a drug buy bust operation jointly conducted by the personnel of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) and Philippine National Police (PNP) in Dapitan City recently.
Niel Ericson J. Bagolboc, 31, of Sta. Cruz, Dapitan City was arrested after he sold “shabu” to a policeman who posed as poseur buyer.
Confiscated from Bagolboc were P500 marked money, two heat-sealed transparent plastic sachets containing white crystalline granules believed to be shabu, a Nokia cellphone and a black Honda XRM motorcycle.
The suspect is now temporarily detained at Dapitan City Police Station pending filing of formal charges in court. (Franklin P. Gumapon-PIA9-ZDN/BST)
