CITY OF CALAPAN – Operatives have arrested a village councilor in this city in a buy-bust operation around noon on Monday.

Suspect Fredelito Tendido, 45, councilor of Barangay Canubing I, was arrested in his own village in a buy-bust operation around 12:10 p.m. and yielded a sachet of alleged “shabu” (methampethamine hydrochloride) along with P500-marked money.
