A ‘HIGH-value target’ in Central Visayas City was arrested by agents of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency in Cebu City on Sunday afternoon after he sold a kilo of shabu worth P6.8 million to an undercover officer, PDEA chair, Director General Wilkins M. Villanueva said.

Suspect Nestor Rosal, a 59-year old jobless resident of Purok 4 in Barangay Kamputhaw, Cebu City was arrested during a sting conducted by operatives from the PDEA Regional Office 7 in his neighborhood 4:10 p.m. Sunday, the official said.

Recovered from the possession of the suspect were 10 plastic packets each containing 100 grams of the so-called ‘poor man’s cocaine’ or a total of one kilo of shabu valued at P6.8 million and the buy-bust money topped by some marked bills.

Villanueva said that the suspect is now facing a non-bailable case for sale and possession of prohibited drugs under Republic Act 9165 or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002.
