Three arrested for illegal drugs
Two brothers and a suspected marijuana peddler have been added to the list of suspects arrested for illegal drugs in anti-narcotics operations in the cities of Sagay and Silay, Negros Occidental, police records show.
Police Chief Inspector Gabriel Gutierrez said yesterday that they arrested Monday Arnold Sinugbuhan, 37, and his younger brother, Amar, 22, during a raid at their residence in Purok Hillside, Brgy. 2 Sagay City, for violation of Republic Act 9165 or the Comprehensive Drugs Act of 2002.
However, the parents of the two suspects, Renato Sinugbuhan “alias Balut”, and his wife, Milagros, “alias Mila”, who are the subjects of a search warrant, were not present during the raid, Gutierrez, Sagay police chief, said.
When the raiding team, composed Sagay policemen and intelligence operatives of the Negros Occidental Police Provincial Office, headed by Senior Insp. Antonio Benitez, entered the house of Sinugbuhan couple, Amar was seen throwing something out of the window, Gutierrez said.
When they recovered the items, they turned out to be two sachets of suspected shabu, he added.
The raid, that was covered by a search warrant issued by Sagay City Judge Reginald Fuentebella, also yielded ammunition for a .38 caliber revolver, four disposable lighters, aluminum foil and P363 in cash.
A suspected marijuana peddler, identified as Peter Jan Jamaybay, 24, was also arrested by a police team led by Senior Insp. Vanessa Gayle Dura-Sonoy, during a buy-bust operation in Brgy. Guinhalaran, Silay City, on Sept. 8.
Supt. Rosauro Francisco, Silay police chief, said the arrest of Jamaybay also yielded suspected dried marijuana leaves, P400 in marked money, P200 in cash believed to be proceeds from the sale of the prohibited drugs, a Nokia cellular phone, and a lighter.
Jamaybay is now in jail.*GPB
