According to PNP Officer-in-Charge Lt. Gen. Vicente Danao Jr., the first apprehended suspect is identified as Bryan Justol, 20. He was nabbed Tuesday after the Cebu City Police Office conducted an anti-illegal drug operation in Barangay Duljo-Fatima.
Arresting officers confiscated 32 transparent packs of shabu estimated to be worth P4,760,000 from Justol.
