Actress moved to Valenzuela jail, discloses pregnancy
Almost two weeks after her arrest for allegedly selling “shabu,” sexy actress Krista Miller, who has also disclosed her pregnancy to the police, was transferred to the Valenzuela City Jail Friday night.
The Quezon City Police District director, Senior Supt. Guillermo Lorenzo Eleazar, said the 26-year-old Miller was moved to the Valenzuela jail on at 9:40 p.m. Miller, along with alleged accomplice Aaron Medina, was arrested by a QCPD team on Oct. 3 in a buy-bust operation at a gas station on General Tiburcio de Leon Street near Santolan Road in Valenzuela.
She was detained at the QCPD headquarters in Camp Karingal while awaiting a commitment order from the Valenzuela court.
She and other arrested drug suspects were then made to tend a garden inside the camp as a form of exercise, with QCPD later releasing a photo of them at work.
Asked about a report that Miller was pregnant when arrested, Eleazar said the actress personally confirmed this to the police. “She said she is five months pregnant,” the QCPD chief said.
Because of her condition, she can file a petition to be transferred to a less crowded detention facility, he added.
There are separate quarters for female detainees at the Valenzuela jail but the facility has become crowded because of the Duterte administration’s war on drugs, according to Eleazar.
The 26-year-old Miller, whose real name is Kristalyn Engle, allegedly sold P3,000 worth of shabu to undercover agents on the night of Oct. 3.
The QCPD set a trap for the actress after two female models for a men’s magazine—Liaa Alelin Bolla, 24, and Jeramie Padolina, 30—were arrested earlier that day and pointed to Miller as their source of drugs.
