CITY of San Fernando, Pampanga -- Four suspected drug pushers were arrested while some P300,000 worth of shabu were confiscated during two separate buy-bust operations here the other day.

Senior Supt. Joel Consulta, acting Pampanga police director, identified one of the suspects as Emil Mago, a target drug personality and a suspect in a series of robbery-holdup incidents on Jose Abad Santos Avenue.

Confiscated from Mago’s possession were 12 sachets of shabu worth P150,000 and the marked peso bill used in the buy-bust operation in Bgy. San Jose.

In Bgy. Calulut, this city, police arrested Loren Rivas, Rodelio David and Joel Tolention, during separate anti-illegal drug operation.

Rivas, according to investigators, is a drug courier who collects shabu from Cavite and delivers it in the nearby towns of Guagua and Floridablanca.

Seized from the three were 12 plastic sachets of shabu worth P150,000, the marked money and a motorcycle they were using to sell drugs.

Police Regional Office 3 director Chief Supt. Amador Corpus said police are bent on eradicating illegal drugs trade in all parts of Central Luzon.

The suspects are facing charges for violation of Republic Act 9165 or the Comprehensive Dagerous Drugs Act of 2002.
