Guns, drugs confiscated


Guns and drugs worth P107,900 were seized by the Bacolod police on Monday from two persons, including the half-sister of slain drug lord Ramy Poja.

Police officers of Station 2 arrested Kris Poja, 31, while her live-in partner, whose name was not disclosed, escaped during a buy-bust operation in Barangay Estefania, Bacolod, at about 7:45 p.m. Monday, P/Maj. Sherlock Gabana, the station commander, said yesterday.

Recovered from Poja were seven plastic sachets of suspected shabu weighing 9 grams with a market value of P61,200, and drug paraphernalia, the police said.

Aside from the illegal drugs, the operatives also seized an M3 9mm caliber grease gun with two magazines, a .9mm caliber pistol with three magazines, tear gas, two holen guns, 60 live ammunition of a .9mm, two brass knuckles, and two cellular phones, police records show.

Gabana said that the couple were probably using the guns to protect themselves.

Poja is now detained at the custodial facility of Station 2.

Meanwhile, members of the Regional Drug Enforcement Unit 6 nabbed an alleged drug pusher during a buy-bust operation in Barangay Taculing, Bacolod City, at about 8 p.m. Monday.

Rodolph Guillermo was caught with 11 plastic sachets of suspected shabu in his possession weighing 7 grams worth P46,700, and the marked money, a report from Police Regional Office 6 said.

Guillermo is now detained at the custodial facility of Station 6.*
