Two armed drug suspects were arrested during a buy-bust operation conducted by members of the Las Piñas police Station Drug Enforcement Unit (SDEU) on Tuesday, Nov. 22.
Col. Jaime Santos, city police chief, identified the suspects as Nasser Ismael, alias Jong, 35; and Ismael Ahmad, 26 years old.
Santos said the suspects were arrested around 2 a.m. along Diego Sierra in front of Alpha Mart, Barangay Manuyo Uno.
The city police chief said members of the SDEU confiscated from the suspects four plastic sachets containing shabu with an estimated weight of more or less 5.1 grams and worth ₱34,680.
Santos said that aside from the shabu, a .45 caliber pistol with eight live ammunition and Toyota Vios were also confiscated from the suspects by members of SDEU.
