The suspect, Rey Baya Manunag, of Sitio Burgos, Barangay General Luna, was listed as Top 7 in the PNP’s Drug Watchlist, local authorities said in their report to the Police Regional Office-6 and the Negros Occidental Police Provincial Office.
Police operatives, under the direct supervision of P/Lt. Paul Kenneth Magan, the local PNP officer-in-charge, recovered two small heat-sealed transparent plastic sachets of suspected shabu, a medium heat-sealed plastic, P500 buy-bust money, a red-colored Kawasaki ‘Barako’ motorcycle with side car, P230 as proceeds from drug sale and suspected shabu worth P6,392, a press release said.
“Another one bites the dust Good job!,” Toboso Mayor Richard Jaojoco said, as he congratulated the local PNP.
Police will file charges against Manunag for violation of the Republic Act 9165 which mandates the government to “pursue an intensive and unrelenting campaign against the trafficking and use of dangerous drugs and other similar substances.”*
