Police nab drug pushers in Baguio
by Ofelia C. Empian

Two high value targets of the Baguio City Police Office were arrested on Nov. 4 during a buy-bust operation at Barangay Upper Balsigan.

Jessie C. Puruganan, 40, from Paoay, Ilocos Norte and resident of Upper Balsigan and Anthony R. Castillo, 42, also known as “Tulig” from Sta. Cruz, Manila and resident of Kisad Road were caught while selling shabu to undercover agents.

The suspects sold a sachet of shabu worth P9,000 and weighing 2.5 grams to a Drug Enforcement Unit underco-ver agent who posed as a buyer.

Police recovered two more sachets of shabu weighing one gram each, assorted drug paraphernalia, and the buy-bust money from the suspects during the arrest.

The evidence were inventoried and marked on-site in the presence of the suspects and witnesses and brought to the Regional Crime Laboratory Office-Cordillera for test and chemistry examination.

The suspects, who were charged for violations of the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act, are detained at the Baguio City Jail.

The BCPO has been relentless in implementing the government’s campaign against illegal drugs, which is why it has been conducting the “one-time, big-time” operation in the city. 

In August, the BCPO reported that around 94 suspects were arrested in 73 anti-illegal drugs operations conducted by the office from January to July this year.

In October, 76 wanted persons, including two top most wanted, were arrested in a series of operations conducted by the Baguio’s Finest.
