Personnel from three police units arrested a jobless man from Virac who tried to sell a sachet of shabu to an undercover cop and then yielded nine more sachets in a subsequent search last Sunday.
Anthony Lim, a resident of barangay Calatagan Tibang, was collared shortly after handing over the sachet to the operative in the bu-bust operation conducted along Real St. in nearby Calatagan Proper at 6 P.M. of Nov. 29, 2020 by elements of the Virac police station, Catanduanes Provincial Intelligence Unit and the Regional Intelligence Unit 5 in coordination with the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) 5.
Through a confidential informant, the undercover lawman successfully bought P500 worth of the illegal drug from Lim and signaled other police personnel, leading to the latter’s arrest and subsequent discovery of nine more sachets.
The drug seized consisted of two small sachets and eight big ones, it was learned.
Lim, who residents said was not known to be a drug user or pusher, will be charged for violation of Sections 5 and 11 of Republic Act 9165.
