OPERATIVES of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) arrested a daughter of an alleged big-time drug pusher operating in Calabarzon (Calamba, Laguna, Batangas and Quezon) and two minors during a raid on the suspect’s house which yielded more than 50 grams of shabu yesterday in Pasay City.

Ella Robelle Talde, 28, daughter of suspected big-time drug pusher Hilario Talde, as well as the unidentified minors, were taken to PDEA headquarters for investigation.
   
Police said PDEA operatives from Region 4A and National Capital Region raided Hilario’s house at 10 a.m. on Mangahan St., FB Harrison, Pasay City, by virtue of a search warrant issued by Executive Judge Reynaldo Alhambra of Manila Regional Trial Court Branch 53. Hilario, however, was not around during the raid.
   
PDEA agent Mabel Alejandro said some 50 grams of shabu were recovered at the drawer of a table inside the room at the 3rd floor of the suspect’s house while another plastic sachet containing shabu was found at the compartment of a MIO scooter owned by the suspect.
   
Alejandro said the suspect’s base of operation was in Calabarzon and his clients are rich and well-off families in the region.
   
She added that the suspect, who was included in police drug watchlist, was the subject of their surveillance the past couple of weeks.
