NPD Director P/Brig. Gen. Ronaldo Ylagan said the arrest of Fabul was the result of intelligence driven operation by elements of DDEU which was personally supervised by P/Lt. Col.Giovanny Hycenth Caliao I, chief of District Special Operation Unit (SDOU).

Ylagan said the suspect was presented for inquest proceedings before the Caloocan City Prosecutor’s Office on charges of selling and possession of illegal drugs while the seized evidence was brought to the NPD Crime Laboratory for chemical analysis.
