CABANATUAN CITY –– Eight people, including the province’s second top priority target on illegal drugs, were arrested in simultaneous anti-criminality operations in Nueva Ecija on Monday, police said.

Col. Marvin Joe Saro, Nueva Ecija police director, said the high-ranking drug suspect was Jonjon Pangilinan, 44, a resident of Barangay San Nicolas, Gapan City.

The others were arrested based on standing warrants for various offenses, while some were frisked during drug buy-bust operations in Gapan and the towns of San Isidro, Sto. Niño, and Guimba.
