A FORMER sexy starlet was arrested in a drug buy-bust operation conducted by anti-drug operatives of the Quezon City Police District Sunday night in Brgy. Pasong Tamo, Quezon City.
QCPD director Senior Supt. Guillermo Lorenzo Eleazar said that “Sabrina M.” who is Karen Salas Palasigui in real life, 36, of 9 Pulangui Street, Napocor Village, Brgy. Pasong Tamo, was among the showbiz personalities who fell into the hands of the authorities in the ongoing fight against illegal drugs.
Also arrested during the operation were Erwin Suba San Martin, 29, of no. 9 Pulangui St., Napocor Village, Brgy. Pasong Tamo, and Edwin Locsin Coloma, 38, of Roque 1 Extension, Brgy. Pasong Tamo.
Combined elements of District Anti-Illegal Drugs-Special Operations Task Unit (DAID-SOTG) and District Special Operations Unit (DSOU) said Sabrina M. was collared around 11:45 p.m. outside her house while handing over the illegal stuff to a policeman-buyer.
A team from the District’s Anti-Drugs Division under Supt. Rogarth Campo received information regarding Sabrina’s illegal activities. After placing the ex-bold star actress under surveillance, the anti-narcotics team designed a buy-bust which turned positive.
Seized from Sabrina was P6,000 in marked bills and five grams of suspected shabu.
When operatives barged inside the actress’ residence, they found the two other suspects in a pot session.
Eleazar said Sabrina’s arrest could lead to the arrest of some showbiz personalities who are involved in illegal drugs. He also said that there is a possibility that Sabrina M. could be a supplier of illegal drugs to some celebrities.
