AFTER the successful controlled delivery operation last March 16 in Caloocan City, the PDEA Central Luzon scored another successful operation on Saturday that led to the arrest of two high value drug suspects and seizure of half a kilo of shabu valued at P3,450,000.

The PDEA-CL identified the arrested suspects as Ernesto Baculi, 32, of Blk 17 Lot 30, Yakal St., Cristina Homes, Bgy. Camarin; and Jhonsom Salvador, 33, of Blk 3 Lot 23, Sampaguita St., Bgy. 177, Camarin, both in Caloocan City.

In an initial report of the PDEA Region III, an undercover PDEA agent secured a drug deal with the suspects that resulted in their arrest.

The entrapment yielded five pieces of knot-tied plastic containing shabu weighing at least 500 grams amounting to P3,450,000, a mobile phone, and the marked money .

The two suspects will be charged with violation of RA 9165 or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 200.
