5 drug suspects nabbed

NAGA CITY—Five (5) suspects allegedly involved in the illegal drug trade in the town of Bula, Camarines Sur were arrested by the members of the Camarines Sur Provincial Police Office headed by OIC Provincial Director Senior Supt. Walfredo G. Pornillos at 5:15 a.m. on July 6.



The members of the police team have confiscated substances believed to be illegal drugs known as methamphetamine hydrochloride, more popularly known as “shabu.”

Aside from the shabu, the team also recovered firearms from the suspects.

The anti-drug operation was conducted by a team of police officers from the Bula Muncipal Police Station, Camarines Sur Provincial Police Office, and the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA), who jointly executed three search warrants, all for violation of Republic Act 9165.

The search warrants were all issued by Iriga City Regional Trial Court Presiding Judge Timoteo A. Panga, Jr. of Branch 60.

Said warrants were directed against the residences of spouses Jennifer Espinosa y Balares and John Rey Espinosa y Doe, both of legal age; Joan Labahan y Balares, and Dennig Labahan y Doe, both of legal age, and Francisco "Isko" Balares y Doe.

The above named persons are all residents of Zone I, Lubgan, Bula, Camarines Sur.
During the service of the search warrants, at least two persons, both armed with a short handgun immediately fired upon the law enforcers, prompting the operatives to return fire.

After a brief firefight and short chase, a male suspect later identified as Jonathan Pallega y Brizuela, of Casugan, Bula, Camarines Sur was arrested.

Recovered from Pallega's possession was a caliber .38 hand gun loaded with five pieces of live ammunition, along with six other pieces of live ammunition for the same type of weapon.

Another male suspect, whose name was not readily known, was able to elude arrest.

During the implementation of the search, Francisco Balares was not present in his house.

At the residence of spouses Espinosa, the law enforcers recovered the white crystalline substance believed to be shabu, placed inside plastic sachet containers of different sizes.

The operatives also recovered cash amounting to P2,513, two lighters, a pair of scissors, cellular phones and a pouch bag.

At the residence of spouses Joan and Dennis Labalan, the law enforcers recovered a caliber .38 gun loaded with six pieces of ammunition.

Meanwhile, the search that was implemented in the house of spouses of Dennis Labahan and Francisco Balares turned out to be negative.

The alleged suspects will be charged with violations of Republic Act 9165, or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002, and Republic Act 10591 or the Comprehensive Firearms and Ammunition Regulation Act.—BICOLSTANDARD.COM Pirming enot. Pirming bago.
