2 nabbed delivering ‘shabu’
to inmate at city district jail


Two teenagers were arrested while in the act of delivering four medium-sized plastic sachets containing suspected shabu inside the city district jail in Barangay Bajumpandan, Dumaguete City, yesterday.

Jail Officer 1 Angelo Ragay identified the suspects as Jason Jacela, a third year high school student at Junob National High School, and Jimmy Tanilon, a job order employee at the City Engineer’s Office, both 19 years old, and residents of the city housing site in Brgy. Cadawinonan.

He said the two handed over for inspection a plastic bag containing mango, a pair of slippers, and bagoong (fish paste) that was placed in a plastic cup sealed with masking tape, and said the bag was for an inmate, identified as Ramir Sta. Ana, who is facing a drugs case.

NORECO 2 men bound for China
to inspect P52-M electrical poles

The Negros Oriental 2 Electric Cooperative will send two employees to China to do an ocular site inspection on the concrete poles it has contracted before they are shipped to Dumaguete City.

NORECO 2 board chairman James Fontelo said engineer Chito Lozano and Board secretary Jufer Aguilar will leave next week to check on the 4,428 concrete electric poles, worth around P52 million, that were manufactured by Yonder Industry Company in Zhejiang, China.

After the inspection, Sumai International Inc., contracted by NORECO 2 to supply the poles, will ship the electrical posts directly to the port of Ducomi in Bacong, then to a storage facility in Dauin, both in Negros Oriental, he added.

‘Pusher’ shot dead

A suspected drug pusher was gunned down by still unidentified assailants while he was on his motorcycle near the house of his father in Rovinil Subdivision, South Bagacay, Dumaguete City, at about 9 a.m. yesterday.

Duty investigator, Senior Police Officer 1 Harvey Cuasito, identified the fatality as Ryan Ozoa, 33, married, of Sto. Niño Road, Barangay Batinguel, Dumaguete, who succumbed to several gunshot wounds in his abdomen and arms.

Recovered at the crime scene were three spent shells of a .45 caliber pistol, and the victim’s motorcycle.
