Lady pusher, 2 others busted in Batad; 18 sachets of shabu confiscated

Camp Francisco U. Sumagaysay, Sr., STA. BARBARA, ILOILO, August 16 -- A lady drug pusher and two others were arrested in a buy-bust operation by authorities of Batad Police Station early dawn today at Brgy. Alinsolong in Batad, Iloilo.

41-year old Belen Delos Santos y Sanchez easily gave away her illegal activity in exchange of P300.00 worth of shabu to a disguised police poseur buyer.

Also arrested were Roy Aguinaldo y Bolivar of Brgy. Bulaqueña, Estancia and Mera Sanchez y Lumbat of Brgy. Alinsolong, Batad, all of Iloilo.

Authorities of Batad MPS were able to account the buy-bust money from Delos Santos’ possession while 14 transparent heat-sealed plastic sachets containing suspected shabu, including the buy-bust item, were in Aguinaldo’s possession, and 4 other sachets containing suspected shabu were confiscated from Sanchez’.

When asked about if Delos Santos is a Tokhang surrenderor or not, “She is not included in our drug’s watch list so she never was included in our Tokhang operation,” PInsp Sullen Domingo, OIC of Batad MPS said of the newly-identified drug personality. “But her name keeps popping out so we executed this operation against her,” added Domingo.

All three are facing court in violation of Sections 5, 6, 7 & 11, Art. II of RA 9165.#
