ANOTHER sexy actress was arrested along with two female part-time models in a series of anti-illegal drugs operations involving personalities in the showbiz industry, the Quezon City police said yesterday.
QCPD director Senior Supt. Guillermo Lorenzo Eleazar said former sexy actress Krista Miller (real name Krystalyn Bacolod Engle), 26, and eight others including the two part-time models were arrested in continuous anti-narcotics operations of QCPD.
Miller was collared at a house in Brgy. Tiburcio Gen. Tiburcio, Gen. T. De Leon, Valenzuela City, around 9 p.m. along with a certain Aaron Medina.
Prior to Krista’s arrest, operatives of the QCPD’s Special Operations Unit and Stations 4 and 8 rounded up former FHM magazine models Liaa Alelin Bolla, 24, and Jeramie Padolina, 30, and three others identified as Justine del Rosario, 19, Renato Hernandez, Jr., 32, and John Enri Barros, 22, in a separate buy-bust operations.
Seized from them were seven sachets of shabu, a sachet of dried marijuana leaves and drug paraphernalia.
Upon interrogation, the suspects pointed to Miller and Barros as their main source of illegal drug prompting the operatives to set a follow-up operation that resulted in the actress’ arrest.
The police team confiscated from Krista a sachet of shabu worth P3,000 and marked money used in the entrapment.
Krista was the second starlet after Sabrina M., 36, (real name Karen Pallasigue) who was arrested last September 25 inside her home in Napocor Village, Barangay Pasong Tamo, Q.C. along with Erwin San Martin, 29, and Edwin Coloma, 38. Pallasigue was even shown on video using shabu on the night of her arrest.
Police said a number of actors have been monitored to be actively involved in drug pushing and abuse, some of them already with previous drug-related arrests while some have been apprehended in the past by rogues in uniform but were released after coughing up huge amount of money.
