PDEA, PNP operatives arrest suspects in buy-bust operation in Puerto

Cagayan de Oro City (25 February) -- Joint elements of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) in region 10 and the 1st Maneuvering Company of 10th Regional Public Safety Management Battalion (RPSMB) arrested a drug suspect in a buy-bust operation in Puerto, Cagayan de Oro City, on February 25.

Certain Alpe Jamisola Baconguis, 21 years old, single and resident of Upper Puerto, was arrested after being caught-in-the-act of watering marijuana plants.

Recovered from his possession and control were approximately 50 grams of marijuana seeds, eight (8) fully grown marijuana hills with fruiting tops, one (1) transparent cellophane containing dried marijuana leaves and 17 marijuana saplings planted in eight (8) bamboo pots.

Director Gilberto B. Abanto, Jr. of PDEA, region 10, said the suspect is now temporarily detained at the PDEA office for booking and documentation while confiscated drug items were brought to the Philippine National Police (PNP) crime laboratory for qualitative and quantitative examination.

Abanto said a case for violation of Republic Act 9165 or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act is being prepared for filing appropriate charges in court against the suspect. (PDEA 10) [top]
