The San Juan Police on Monday arrested a suspected party drug supplier in a buy-bust operation.

The suspect, identified as Ireneo “Neo” Faraon III, 40, was nabbed by operatives of the Station Drugs Enforcement Unit (SDEU).


Based on the police report, the operation started with information that Faraon was selling illegal drugs in his area. The police immediately set up a buy-bust operation. After Faraon handed one sachet of suspected shabu (methamphetamine hydrochloride) in exchange for the P500 marked money, he was immediately arrested by the police.

After doing a mandatory search, the police also found three plastic sachets containing suspected party drugs or ecstasy tablets.


Faraon, based on the report, was about to deliver the party drugs to customers at a club in Quezon City after his drug transaction in San Juan City. He refrained from naming the supplier of the party drug.

Faraon is currently detained at the San Juan Police detention facility and will be charged for violating Republic Act (RA) 9165 or The Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002. — Kristine Anne Macasiray/ intern /ee
