COMBINED members of National Capital Regional Police Office (NCRPO) and Pasig Police nabbed an alleged member of the Boratong-linked pusher in a buy-bust operation in Pasig City over the weekend.
A report to Eastern Police District (EPD) Director Brig. Gen. Johnson Almazan identified the suspect as 61-year-old Cenon Roxas Intalan.
Police said Intalan ranked No. 9 in the NCRPO Priority Data Base on Illegal Drug Personalities.
According to the police, Intalan was also a member of the Boratong drug syndicate who ran the infamous shabu tiangge in Pasig City which was once led by convicted drug lord Amin Imam Boratong.
Boratong recently died due of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
Joint teams from the EPD and NCRPO nabbed Intalan at about 12:30 p.m. on Saturday after dealing illegal drugs with an undercover cop on MRR Street in Bgy. Pineda, Pasig.
The sting operation stemmed from information that Intalan, also known as Antonette, was involved in illegal drug activities in Bgy. Pineda, where he allegedly used his home as a drug den for his clients, according to the report.
“Reportedly, the suspect was identified as one of the ‘source’ of illegal drugs in their barangay where he can dispose more than 50 grams of shabu at a given transaction to his clients,” the EPD said.
Police added the suspect replaced his brother, Anthony, also a member of Boratong drug group, who was arrested for illegal drug activities by members of the EPD Drug Enforcement Unit on July 3, 2018.
It was also revealed that the suspect was previously arrested for drug-related charges in 2006.
During the operation, police reported they recovered two sachets of suspected shabu from Intalan and the P500 marked money.
The suspect is currently detained at Pasig City Police custodial facility and facing charges for violation of Republic Act 9165 or the “Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002.”
