Cop, 2 others nabbed in Taguig shabu session
Three persons, including a policewoman, were arrested for allegedly using shabu (crystal meth) in Taguig City on Thursday afternoon.
PO3 Lynn Tubig and two unidentified men were caught in shabu session at Purok 6, Barangay Tuktukan.
Based on her identification cards, Tubig was assigned at the Philippine National Police-Special Action Force in Camp Bagong Diwa.
According to her barangay ID, she was a resident of De Borja Compound in Barangay Sta. Ana, Pateros.
Also recovered from the suspects were gun replicas, assorted ammunition, aluminum foil, cell phones and IDs.
Tubig, however, denied she was part of the ongoing pot session.
While inside the police mobile, Tubig said she woke up while sleeping on her boyfriend’s house.
Members of the Taguig police then approached her and asked if she was a policeman, she answered yes, introduced herself and was then arrested.
Tubig, however, admitted she was a drug user.
Among those who talked with her were Southern Police District director, Chief Supt. Tomas Apolinario Jr., and Chief Supt. Guillermo Eleazar, the newly appointed chief of the National Capital Region Police Office.
Investigation and inventory of the evidence were ongoing, as of posting time.
