Ex-convict nabbed for drugs in Mandaue

A FORMER inmate ended up in jail again after he was caught carrying 25 grams of shabu worth P107,000 in a drug bust in Barangay Mantuyong, Mandaue City around 7 p.m. Wednesday, November 16, 2022.

Police Major Erwin Abrasado, chief of Centro Police Station of the Mandaue City Police Office, led the operation that resulted in the arrest of George Ygot Nuñez, 41.

Nuñez was also arrested in 2019 for a similar case.

He was, however, freed from prison, and allegedly went back to his illegal drug activity.

Abrasado said they monitored Nuñez for a week based on information they got from the suspect’s neighbors before they conducted the raid.

Police said the suspect can dispose of at least 50 grams of shabu in a week.

Police also learned that Nuñez also supplied drugs to Lapu-Lapu City and Consolacion town. (BBT, TPT)
