Suspected drug peddlers nabbed, P96-K ‘shabu’ seized in Naga City


Anti-narcotics operatives nabbed on Tuesday two suspected drug pushers and seized PHP96,000 worth of suspected shabu (crystal meth) in a drug operation in a village in Naga City, a police report said Wednesday.

Rudy Neil Estioco, 31, single of Barangay Del Rosario and Gil Moreno, 41, of Barangay Tabuco, both from Naga City, were arrested in a buy-bust operation in Barangay Tabuco, according to Chief Insp. Maria Luisa Calubaquib, Police Regional Office-5 (PRO5) spokesperson.

The suspects were caught selling illegal drug to an anti-narcotic agent posing as a buyer. Seized from their possession were 20 grams of suspected shabu packed in two plastic sachets with a street value of PHP96,000, Calubaquib said.

The suspects are considered high-value targets as their names are included in the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) drug watch list.

Estioco and Moreno are now detained at the Naga City jail, Calubaquib said.
