Camp Olivas, City of San Fernando, Pampanga – Angeles City cops on Monday arrested four suspected drug peddlers and confiscated over P180,000 worth of shabu in separate drug operations.

In his report to City Director Col. Rommel Batangan, Station 4 Commander, Maj. PMaj, Ohmar R. Bognot said his men conducted a buy-bust in Sto. Nino, Bgy. Balibago, Angeles City that resulted in the arrest of Jaype Pelle and Mark Ian Orpilla while their alleged cohort identified as Dennis Amoroso escaped.

Confiscated from the two were eight plastic sachets containing shabu valued at P142,800.

Batangan said hours later, members of the Angeles City Drug Enforcement Unit (ACDEU) nabbed Jayar Payad, 30; and Andy Yap, 47, in another entrapment in Purok 4B, Bgy. Pampang, Angeles City, and seized from them six plastic sachets containing shabu worth P40,800.

The four suspects will be charged with violation of RA 9165.

“Continuous proactive operations are being carried out as PRO3 invigorates its efforts to wipe out all forms of illegal drugs to achieve a drug- free Central Luzon,” said PRO3 director Brig. Gen. Matthew Baccay.
