Illegal drugs contained in DVD storage cases seized in Parañaque City

Very recently, the Manila Bulletin published new Parañaque City crime news related to illegal drugs. There is a catch, however, because this latest crime development involved the use of a DVD storage cases as a means to contain the illegal substance which amounted to hundreds of thousands of Pesos.

Think about that. Plastic DVD cases not used for storing movies on disc format but for storing illegal drugs instead. Fortunately for the city and the people, the person suspected to be responsible for the illegal drugs got arrested by police officers (who deserve thanks).

To put things in perspective, posted below is an excerpt from the Manila Bulletin report. Some parts in boldface…

A 30-year-old man was arrested by members of the Southern Police District Drug Enforcement Unit (DDEU) during a buy-bust operation in possession of P340,000 worth of shabu hidden inside DVD cases in Paranaque City on Monday night.

SPD Director Brig. Gen, Jimili Macaraeg identified the suspect as Roy Francis Tolesora. He is now detained at the SPD custodial detention facility and charges for violation of RA 9165, the Comprehensive Dangerous Drug Act of 2002, will be filed against him.

Macaraeg said Tolesora was arrested by members of the DDEU along Angelina Canaynay Avenue, Barangay San Dionisio, Paranaque City at about 7:00 p.m.

He said DDEU members conducted a buy-bust operation against the suspect resulting in the confiscation of about 50 grams of shabu amounting to P340,000.

Let me end this piece by asking you readers: Do you believe that it is possible for local authorities to make Parañaque City a drug-free city? Do you believe that the police are doing enough to get rid of criminals by organizing buy-bust operations? When it comes to crime, what particular form of crime do you think defines criminal activity in Parañaque City?
