Tricycle driver nabbed for ‘drug peddling’

IVISAN, Capiz – Joint elements of Ivisan and Mambusao Station Drug Enforcement Team (SDET) recovered 11 sachets of suspected shabu from a 39-year-old tricycle driver at Barangay Malocloc Norte here, evening of August 23, 2018.

Jorge Benliro Barrios was arrested after dealing with a poseur-buyer.

Chief Inspector Ricardo Jumuad, officer-in-charge of Ivisan Municipal Police Station, said Barrios also yielded the P500 marked money and the cell phone he allegedly used in the transaction.

But the suspect denied that he was involved in the illegal drug trade.

Barrios is presently detained at the Ivisan police station while charges for violation of Republic Act 9165 (Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002) are being readied against him.
