NAGA CITY–Nicanor Faeldon Jr., son of Bureau of Corrections chief Nicanor Faeldon Sr., tested negative for drugs in the drug test that he took with other suspects who were arrested with him in a police raid in this city, the police crime laboratory result said Saturday.

The initial laboratory results, released by the Naga City police Saturday morning, said drug suspects Russel Lanuzo, Allan Valdez and Manuel Niebres who were also arrested in the drug raid in a house in Barangay (village) Mabolo at 5 a.m. on Friday tested positive. Only Faeldon Jr. was cleared by the drug test result.

Senior Superintendent Felix Servita Jr., Naga City police director, assured the public that the lab report was “legit and no element tried to influence the results.”

Servita also said Faeldon Jr., despite the negative drug test result, would still face charges which include violation of  the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002, particularly Section 7, since the house where he was arrested was an “identified drug den.”

Faeldon Jr., in a statement to police, had admitted that he lives with his girlfriend, who was a daughter of suspect Lanuzo, in the house.

However, he said he did not have any knowledge of the illegal drug transactions that happened in the Lanuzo residence prior to his arrest.
