Anti-drug operatives from Police Station 2 (PS2) said the eight suspects were caught in an operation conducted by the station, led by Police Chief Inspector Benedicto Villarias, wherein Languido handed a sachet of suspected shabu to a police poseur buyer, in exchange of P200.
Confiscated from Languido were the said sachet of suspected shabu, P200 buy-bust money, seven small sachets of suspected shabu, six elongated sachets of suspected shabu, drug paraphernalia, and P170 in different denominations believed to be proceeds from the sale of illegal drugs.

The other suspects were arrested after they were caught allegedly using illegal drugs and passing an improvised tooter among themselves.
The confiscated items have an estimated street value of P8,000.
