Buy-bust operation in Las Piñas City results in the arrest of a suspect and seizure of weapons and illegal drugs

Recently in the city of Las Piñas, the local police organized a buy-bust operation which led to the arrest of a 30-year-old man suspected of drug peddling, according to a Manila Bulletin news report. Seized from him were illegal drugs and weapons.

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

Members of Las Piñas Station Drug Enforcement Unit (SDEU) seized illegal drugs, a grenade and a gun from a suspected drug peddler during a buy-bust operation on Friday, Feb. 17.

Col. Jaime Santos, city police chief, said the suspect, Roberto Aringo,30, alias Jon, reportedly known for his illegal drug trade, was nabbed at about 6:30 p.m. in Kawayanan Tambakan, Pulanglupa Uno, Las Piñas.

Santos said police operatives confiscated from the suspect three heat-sealed transparent sachets containing 12.2 grams of shabu worth P82,960.

The city police chief said that aside from shabu, the cops also seized from the suspect a hand grenade, .38-caliber revolver, and the P500 buy-bust money.

Santos said the confiscated shabu was turned over to the Southern Police District (SPD) Forensic Unit for chemical analysis.
