4 drug suspects nabbed in Zambales
SAN ANTONIO, Zambales — Police arrested four drug suspects who were in the act of sniffing “shabu” (crystal meth) in Castillejos town on Wednesday (Oct. 13).
Col. Romano Cardiño, provincial police director, identified the suspects as James Darylle Calderon, 35; Nexylea Malangen, 33; Jinessa Labaclado, 21; and Rochelle Hayes, 44.
Calderon is included in the province’s drug watchlist, Cardiño said in a report.
Investigators said an undercover agent managed to buy a sachet of shabu from one of the suspects, which led to the arrest of the others caught in the act having a pot session.
Seized from them were 12 plastic sachets containing alleged shabu weighing about 8.78 grams with an estimated value of P57,000 and drug paraphernalia.
Also confiscated from Calderon was a loaded .22-caliber revolver.
They will face charges for violating the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002 and the Comprehensive Firearms and Ammunition Regulation Act.
