No. 2 in reg’l drug watch list busted in Tagum

TAGUM CITY—Big-time drug personalities under the watchlist of the Philippine National Police and the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency were arrested over the weekend, scoring another big achievement for the government’s war on drugs.

Operatives of PNP Tagum City Police Station and PDEA arrested Juvy Ann Tangaro and Alfadi Caundudan in separate buy-bust operations last June 2, 2018 at Barangay Madaum.

Tangaro is considered a high-value target being listed as second in the roll of drug personalities by the government’s drug enforcement agencies. During the buy-bust, she was in possession of a 25-gram shabu with street value of 170,000 pesos.

She was immediately slapped with a case in violation of Republic Act 9165.

Caundudan, on the other hand, is also included in the PNP Directorate’s intelligence watchlist.

Mayor Allan L. Rellon rallied on the police force to continue with its effort in eradicating illegal drugs in the city, following the framework of the national government’s war on drugs.

Meanwhile, Mayor Rellon have announced he is putting up a cash reward for those who can give information about other collaborators in the killing of a child in Visayan Village who are still at large.

Two others are yet to be arrested, according to the police, while the remaining two—brothers Michael and Lawrence Micabalo Dapit—are already detained by the police following the official filing of charges of kidnapping and murder against them.

The family of the victim has already been given a house and lot courtesy of the local government to at least help ease the pain of the incident.

On the other hand, Mayor Rellon has also announced he will give a cash reward to those who can inform the authorities about the whereabouts of 29-year old Aaron “Aro” Cabaling, Emerson “Dodong Liki” Tormis and an unnamed minor whose warrants of arrest has been issued after being involved in a gang rape along JV Ayala Avenue last year. Rianne Sy/CIO Tagum
