Noe Briguel, PDEA Albay chief, said the suspect was a former jail inmate at the Legazpi City Jail facility who was held for illegal drug peddling in 2019 and was released recently due to a plea bargain procedure and for “good behavior.”

The suspect is now detained in the PDEA regional custodial facility.
