A BARANGAY councilor in Roxas, Oriental Mindoro was arrested by agents of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency in a buy-bust operation last Tuesday, PDEA Director General Isidro S. Lapeña said yesterday.

Willy Villamin, a 65-year-old ‘kagawad’ of Bgy. San Isidro in Roxas town was placed under arrest shortly after he sold shabu to an undercover officer of the PDEA Regional Office 4-B, said the PDEA chief.
   
Recovered from the suspect’s possession were two heat-sealed plastic sachets containing some P1,500 worth of shabu and the marked money he received from a poseur from the PDEA Regional Office 4-B headed by lawyer Jacquelyn de Guzman.
   
Villamin is now facing charges for violation of Section 5 (Sale of Dangerous Drugs), Article II of Republic Act 9165 otherwise known as the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002.
