February 15, 2019

A SECRET drug den in Cebu City was dismantled by agents of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency following an anti-narcotics operation last Tuesday which led in the arrest of nine suspects including the dive’s two maintainers, PDEA chair, Director General Aaron N. Aquino said.

The official said that the secret drug facility was discovered in Sitio Laguna, Barangay Lorega, San Miguel, Cebu City shortly after noon last Tuesday by members of the PDEA Regional Office 7.

The discovery was made shortly after the drug den’s two suspected maintainers identified as Angelina Porlas and Wilson Gomez conspired to sell shabu to an undercover officer.

The ensuing raid led in the arrest of the dive’s visitors identified as Jessie Agapay, Jhunrey Estodillo, Alfred Muit, Fernando Aronalles, Argie Icoy, Richard Tulda and Pablo Nasses Jr.

Aquino said that recovered during the operation were 17 heat-sealed plastic sachets containing around 12 grams of shabu with a market value of P81,600 and assorted drug paraphernalia.
