Lanao del Sur village exec, pal nabbed with 500 grams of meth in Maguindanao
COTABATO CITY—Anti-narcotics agents in Maguindanao arrested on Friday two suspected drug peddlers, one of them a village councilman in Lanao del Sur, and seized P3.4 million worth of crystal meth.
Anthony Naive of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency(PDEA) in Maguindanao identified the suspects as Alinor Orac, 40, and Ibra Farhan, 43.
Farhan is an incumbent councilman in Guinaopan village of Tamparan town, Lanao del Sur, Naive said.
Naive said that PDEA agents were tipped about the suspects’ selling drugs inside their vehicle, prompting the buy-bust operation.
The suspects agreed to sell meth to an undercover agent along the national highway in the village of Tambo in Sultan Mastura town, Maguindanao at 4 p.m. on Friday.
Seized from the suspects were 500 grams of meth with an estimated market value of P3.4 million.
The two are now detained at the PDEA regional office here while charges are being prepared against them.
