Former OFW arrested in Taguig City buy bust ops

A former overseas Filipino worker (OFW) was arrested in a buy bust operation conducted by the NCRPO Drug Enforcement Unit on Thursday night, according to the report of Vonne Aquino on Unang Balita.

Mobina Baluno was arrested after operatives were able to buy 25 grams of suspected shabu worth P65,000 on Triumph Street, Barangay western Bicutan, Taguig City.

NCRPO DEU operatives said one sachet of suspected shabu was also recovered from Baluno, bringing the total cost of suspected shabu taken from the suspect to P130,000.

The suspect said she did not know the paper bag contained shabu and that she was just given an instruction to hand it over to a taxi driver.

The police are conducting an investigation to determine the scope of the illegal drug trade in the area and to identify the source of the illegal drugs.

The suspect will be facing charges related to RA 9165 or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs of 2002. — BAP, GMA News
