ROXAS CITY, Capiz – A 23-year-old man was arrested in a drug buy-bust operation at Sitio San Jose, Brgy. Inzo Arnaldo here afternoon of Sept 8, 2018.
The Roxas City police recovered five sachets of suspected shabu, a cellphone, and P1,000 cash from Franz Hernan Degala.
According to Inzo Arnaldo village chief Einstein Okpora, Degala is not a drug surrenderee in the barangay and it was the first time that he saw the suspect in the area.
Okpora said that he is yet to organize a Barangay Anti Drug Abuse Council (BADAC) because the previous administration has yet to turnover barangay properties like official documents.
Meanwhile, Degala, who is now detained at the Roxas police station, will be charged for violation of Republic Act 9165 (Comprehensive Dangerous Drug Act of 2002).
