Olongapo cops nab 5 drug suspects; family surrenders in Isabela
OLONGAPO CITY — Five drug suspects were caught in buy-bust operations conducted here over the weekend.
Angelita Pamplona, Ronnie Dela Cruz and Francisco Layug were arrested on Saturday (Aug. 20) at 4 a.m., said Senior Supt. Jerry Sumbad, acting director of the Olongapo City Police Office.
Pamplona, 25, was among the 400 self-confessed drug suspects who turned themselves in to authorities during a ceremony for a mass surrender here last month.
Seized from the suspects were 10 plastic sachets containing alleged shabu (methamphetamine hydrochloride) and drug paraphernalia.
On Sunday (Aug. 21), the police served an arrest warrant against Maritess Freeman, 47, while Juvy Ann Cabrito, was arrested in a separate police operation.
In Isabela on Monday, a family of five in Cauayan City surrendered to the police, confessing they were drug abusers, according to a police report.
The family was composed of a 60-year-old man, his wife and their three children, the youngest of whom was 19-years-old. Their names were concealed for security reasons. SFM
