ZAMBOANGA CITY, Zamboanga del Sur—A commercial photographer and his companion were arrested Sunday in a raid at Martha Drive, Santa Catalina village in this city.

Major Shellamae Chang, spokesperson of the Police Regional Office 9 (PRO9), said the raiding teams seized more than P2 million worth of suspected methamphetamine hydrochloride substance, locally known as “shabu,” in their anti-illegal drugs operation.


The police identified the two drug hawkers as Adriano Ganela Pedro, also known as Jun-jun, 40, a photographer who lived in Barangay Santa Catalina; and Jimhar Jalani Usman, also known as Jemsrockz, 40, an unemployed resident of Barangay Talon-Talon.

Chang said the team recovered six sachets containing around 300 grams of suspected shabu. They also seized a cellular phone, pouch, eco-bag, a motorbike, and marked money from the two suspects.


Pedro and Usman are under the custody of the Zamboanga City Police Station (ZCPS) 11 while awaiting the filing of charges.
