ESamar police scores anew vs. drug traffickers

by Alice Nicart

BORONGAN CITY, Eastern Samar, Jan 16 (PIA) –- In broad daylight, police operatives of the PNP Provincial Command and Borongan City Police Station arrested four suspected drug traffickers in a nearby barangay yesterday.

Led by PCI Alladin Dingal, the policemen collared suspected drug traffickers: Efren Baquilod, from Maydolong town; Michael Anire and Romil Norombaba from Borongan; all of legal age and a fourth one, whose name was withheld being a minor.

PCI Edwin Barbosa, of the PNP Provincial Command, reported that the suspects, riding in tandem but plate-less TMX motorcycles, were intercepted along the highway, fronting the Eastern Samar State University (ESSU), barangay Maypangdan this city, at past 12 noon.

Barbosa reported further that the policemen, on a tip from a concerned citizen, flagged down the two motorcycles which were heading towards the city proper.

“As they stopped, the policemen requested Baquilod, the group leader, to open the box which contained several packs of junk foods,” Barbosa said.

“However, the policemen continued to search for any suspicious pack and they found a differently packed junk food sealed with masking tape, and opening it, discovered two grams of the so-called Shabu,” the officer revealed.

Although Baquilod denied knowledge of the illegal drug, he was singled out by his two companions. The two boys revealed that they just picked it up from an Eagle Star bus that ply to the province from Manila, the report added.

As of press time, the four suspects were being detained at the PNP Provincial Office, pending the filing of the case against them.(PIA-Eastern Samar/anicart)
