The tenth-most wanted drug personality by Police Station 9 (PS9) was recently arrested during a buy-bust operation at Purok Mahinangpanon in Barangay Punta Taytay, Bacolod City.
Police identified the suspect as Justine Atenta ‘Baktin’ Muesco, a resident of Purok Masipag in the said barangay.
PS9 commander, Police Senior Inspector Jun Ray Batadlan, said Muesco previously surrendered under ‘Oplan: Tokhang’ but had reportedly continued in the illicit activity.
Police recovered four sachets of suspected shabu, the P500 buy-bust money, two live bullets, and an improvised pin gun of unknown caliber.
Authorities estimated the value of the illicit substance at P9,000.
