A man was arrested on drugs charges last Monday in Barangay Magsaysay, located in Iloilo City’s La Paz district. Authorities identified the arrested suspect as 41-year-old Job Doronilla of the district’s Barangay San Nicholas.
Law enforcement conducted the arrest at 4:30 p.m. after the suspect sold a sachet of suspected shabu to an undercover police officer for P600. A subsequent search yielded nine sachets of suspected shabu worth around P5,000 and the buy-bust money.
Doronilla is currently detained at the La Paz Police Station where he faces charges in violation of RA 9165, or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002./WDJ
