The series of anti-drug operations in Negros Occidental during the weekend led to the seizure of more than P230,000 worth of suspected shabu and guns with ammunition.

A drug suspect identified as Edward Diva, 28, was apprehended yesterday during a buy-bust operation in Brgy. Tortosa, Manapla, Negros Occidental.

Capt. Jaynick Bermudez, Manapla police officer-in-charge, said in his report to the Negros Occidental Police Provincial Office, that the arrest of Diva yielded 0.90 gram of suspected shabu with a street market value of P3,500, and P500 in marked money.

Aside from the suspected shabu, the Silay police led by Maj. Rollie Pondevilla also recovered P4,000 in marked money, including the P3,500 boodle money, a disposable lighter, and a Mentos canister.
