The series of anti-illegal drugs operations of the police led to the discovery of marijuana cultivation activities in Sagay City, the arrest of five drug suspects, and the seizure of P44,000 worth of suspected shabu Wednesday.

P/Lt. Col. Albert Sy said yesterday that they discovered marijuana plants being cultivated in Purok Maghirupay, Brgy. Taba-ao, Sagay City, and arrested Mark Gerald Maru, 19, while his father, Marcelino, managed to escape.

Sy, who is the Sagay City police chief, said they recovered four fully grown marijuana plants, seven dried stems with roots, and dried marijuana leaves.

He said he believes that some of the marijuana plants had already been harvested.

Meanwhile, the buy-bust operation in Sitio Paradise, Brgy. Rizal, Silay City, Wednesday led to the arrest of Sashley Canson and Adrian Lagio, both categorized by the police as street level individual drug personalities.

SHABU, TOO

Their arrest yielded about six grams of suspected shabu, worth P30,000, marked money of P1,500, and P1,227 in cash proceeds.

Cristopher Ryan Bello was also apprehended by the police in another buy-bust operation in Purok Talong, Brgy. Dos Hermanas, Talisay City.

The arrest of Bello, alias Toto, tagged by the police as a newly identified SLI drug personality, yielded about 2.5 grams of suspected shabu, with a market value of P17,000, a cellular phone, P460 in cash, and P500 in marked money.

A similar operation in Brgy. Binicuil, Kabankalan City, also led to the arrest of Kris Benjie Calata, and the seizure of a gram of suspected shabu, worth P6,800, P680 in cash, P500 in marked money, and a Honda motorcycle.*
