THE Anti-Illegal Drugs Special Operation Task Force (AIDSOTF) has arrested two suspected drug pushers on separate buy-bust operations in Zamboanga City.

Police Station 11 Superintendent Diomarie Albarico identified the arrested suspects as Hamid Ahadani, 55, and Archie Balandra, 28.

Ahadani was arrested around 4:50 p.m. Wednesday in a buy-bust operation near a bank along Pablo Burgos Street. He was arrested after he sold a sachet of suspect shabu to an undercover policeman.


Recovered from the suspect’s possession were a sachet of suspected shabu, five pieces of marked P100 bills, P20 coins of different denominations, and a cigarette pack containing another sachet of suspected shabu, Albarico said.

Balandra was arrested around 10:23 p.m. Wednesday in a separate buy-bust operation at Sitio Presa Mayor in the village of Tumaga. He was arrested after he allegedly sold a sachet of suspected shabu to a policeman who pretended to be a buyer.

Confiscated from the suspect’s possession were two sachets of suspected shabu and three pieces of P100 marked bills, he said.

The suspects were detained while appropriate charges are being readied to be filed against them.
