PAGADIAN CITY – Members of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) arrested a policeman and another suspect during an anti-illegal drug raid in Ozamiz City on Tuesday.

Pacatang, a member of the Misamis Occidental Mobile Force Company who was in the house at the time of the raid, yielded a sachet of suspected shabu when frisked and arrested.
