Based on a police report, authorities collared Dino Alcobendas Mallari, 31, along A. Lake Street in Barangay Balong Bato at around 11:45 p.m. Thursday.


He was arrested after selling a sachet of suspected shabu to a police officer who posed as a buyer. Subsequent search on the suspect’s motorcycle yielded a sachet of suspected ecstasy. Authorities have yet to determine the quantity of the tablets, as of this posting.
