A woman bravely exercised a citizen’s arrest Thursday in Talay, Dumaguete City, on her nephew who became unruly and allegedly admitted using illegal drugs.
An initial police report identified the nephew as Alvin Mariño, 23, of Talay.
The police said the man became difficult to control and admitted to relatives that he was into illegal drugs.
He was turned over to the intelligence unit of the Dumaguete police. Recovered from him was a matchbox containing suspected dried marijuana leaves.
Mariño is currently detained at the city police station, and arrangements are being made for him to undergo rehabilitation and treatment.*JFP
