20-year-old drug Butuan pusher arrested

by Reynante S. Llanos

BUTUAN CITY (September 28) -- The Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) Regional Office XIII operatives headed by PCI Romulo Estacapio arrested an alleged drug pusher named Rex Cabugatan, 20 years old, self-employed, married and a resident of Buri Street, Taglatawan, Bayugan City.

The suspect was arrested on September 24, 2007 at 12:30 pm at Bayugan Public Market infront of Kimhim Drygoods Store.

One big sachet of methamphetamine hydrochloride popularly known as "shabu" was confiscated from his possession. Moreover, the suspect was accidentally shot on his left foot after attempting to grab the gun of one of the PDEA operatives. The suspect is facing charges of illegal possession of prohibited drugs under Section 5, Article II and Republic Act 9165.

PDEA continuously intensifies its fight against illegal drugs throughout Caraga Region under its drug demand and supply reduction drive. They believe that their vigorous campaign against illegal drugs can be attained through the prosecution and conviction of all persons who violated the provisions of drug law. This is a manifestation that PDEA is serious in their fight against proliferation of illegal drugs in the region. (PIA-13) [top]
