The Oplan Barrel reloaded campaign of the Philippine National Police in Negros Occidental led to the arrest of 11 more drug suspects, and the seizure of more than P330,000 worth of suspected shabu.
In a series of police buy-bust operations, nine were arrested in Silay City and one each in Cauayan and Moises Padilla towns, police records show.
Nabbed during a buy-bust operation yesterday at Kalye Onse in Brgy. Mambulac, Silay City, were Noriel Peromingan, Alvin Rey Barbas, Audie Ferrer, Danilo Jimiera, Roy Toledo, Julieta Tano, Genevieve Solano and her sister, Ana Margarita.
Supt Noel Polines, Silay City police chief, said the buy-bust operation also led to the confiscation of about 20 grams of suspected shabu, estimated to have a street market value of P300,000, assorted shabu paraphernalia and P500 in marked money.
A day earlier, policemen also arrested Ricardo Jodilla Jr., for a similar violation in Brgy. Lantad, in Silay City.
The apprehension of Jodilla, who was caught in the act of repacking illegal drugs, also yielded P30,000 worth of suspected shabu and its paraphernalia, Polines said.
A habal-habal driver identified as Wilson Flores was also arrested by the police in Brgy. 7 poblacion, Moises Padilla, Negros Occidental, Wednesday for violation of RA 9165, also known as the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002.
Senior Inspector Junji Liba, Moises Padilla police officer-in-charge, said the apprehension of Flores yielded 10 sachets of suspected shabu, P400 in marked money and a cellular phone.
Romulo Namacpacan Jr. was also arrested in Brgy. Poblacion, Cauayan, with a sachet of suspected shabu, and P300 in marked money, the police said.*
