Anti-drug operatives of Bacolod City Police Office arrested two suspects and seized P1.57 million worth of suspected shabu during a buy-bust in the city’s Barangay 2 yesterday.

The suspects were identified as Michael John Tabara, a high-value individual, and his companion Janclyde Pillora.

In a report, the City Drug Enforcement Unit said around 3:28 a.m., Tabara sold suspected shabu worth P10,000 to an undercover policeman at a residence in the village’s Purok Sigay.

Operatives also found in the suspects’ possession two knot-tied and four big heat-sealed transparent plastic sachets containing 232 grams of suspected shabu.

Pegged at P6,800 per gram, the recovered illegal drugs were valued at about P1.57 million.

Seized non-drug items included P250 cash and a sling bag, the report added.

Both suspects are detained at the custodial facility of Police Station 2.

Charges for violation of Section 5 (sale of dangerous drugs) and Section 11 (possession of dangerous drugs) are being readied against Tabara, while against Pillora, only for violation of Section 11 of Republic Act 9165, or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002. (PNA)
