COMBINED policemen and anti-narcotic agents have arrested an alleged drug pusher in a buy-bust operation in an east coast village in Zamboanga City, the police reported Friday.

Arrested was Marcelito Saavedra alias Nonoy, 42, a resident of Sitio Balingsungay in the village of Mercedes, east of this city.

Saavedra was arrested around 1:45 a.m. Thursday along Socorro Street, Zone 3-B in the village of Mercedes by personnel of the Police Station 4 and Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (Pdea), the police said.


Saavedra was immediately arrested after he allegedly sold a sachet of suspected methamphetamine hydrochloride or “shabu” to an undercover policeman.

Confiscated from the suspect’s possession were P500 “marked money,” one heat-sealed transparent plastic sachet containing white crystalline substance of suspected shabu, a mobile phone and other prohibited drugs paraphernalia.

The suspect is detained while appropriate charges are set to be filed against him. (Bong Garcia)
