BACOLOD CITY—Three persons were arrested while P407,000 worth of suspected shabu (crystal meth) were seized in two separate buy-bust operations in this city over the weekend, the Bacolod City Police reported.
In Barangay Singcang-Airport, Kristoffer Zuñiga was arrested for allegedly selling a sachet of the prohibited substance for P500 to a poseur-buyer of the Police Station-8 Drug Enforcement Team in Villa Mercedes.
Policemen also seized from Zuñiga, 36 and a resident of Barangay Pahanocoy, at least 11 sachets containing suspected shabu valued at P167,000.
Operatives of the City Drug Enforcement Unit arrested Khominee Dimasancai and his common-law wife, Salvacion Simpao, at their residence in Purok Chico, Barangay 28.
Dimasancai, a high-value target who is out on bail for possession of illegal drugs, reportedly yielded 13 sachets of suspected shabu with an estimated value of P240,000.
The target-suspect sold a sachet worth P1,000 to a poseur-buyer during the operation.
Senior Insp. Adrian James Albaytar, assistant team leader of CDEU, said in a radio interview Saturday that Dimasancai was included on their watchlist.
