A young woman who tried to sneak in drug paraphernalia inside the City Jail Female Dorm was arrested by a female jail guard Friday afternoon inside the Malabon City Jail.

Malabon city jail warden Chief Insp Ma Ignacia Monteron identified the arrested suspect as Jed Anremilyn Borlaza, 20, of 4647 Lot 58 Bgy 171 Bagumbong, Caloocan City who is now facing charges for violation of R.A 9165 or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drug Act of 2002.

Investigation showed that at around 1:05 p.m., Borlaza pretended to visit a friend inside the female dorm of Malabon City Jail but when she was subjected to body frisking and searching by JO1 Rozelle Escueta, a piece of pipe used for sniffing shabu and a tissue were found inside her bag.

The suspect was informed by jail guards of her constitutional rights before she was placed under arrest while the recovered pieces of evidence were turned over to Northern Police District (NPD) Crime Laboratory Satellite Office in Valenzuela city for examination.

The city jail female dorm investigators did not include in their report the name of the suspect’s friend she tried to visit.
