Navy Man Operating Drug Den Arrested With 5 Others

MANILA, Philippines --- A Navy man, his common-law wife, and four others were arrested during a raid of the drug den in Taguig City, the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) said yesterday.

PDEA Director General Arturo Cacdac identified two of those arrested as Philippine Navy enlisted serviceman Romyr de Torres and his live-in-partner Evelyn Labjata, residents of No. 180 Block 6, Zone 3, Barangay Fort Bonifacio, Taguig City.

Armed with a search warrant, combined operatives of the PDEA Special Enforcement Service (PDEA-SES) and the Naval Intelligence and Security Force (NISF) apprehended the couple last Monday in the house that they used as a drug den.

Cacdac said that operatives seized from the couple 25 plastic sachets of methamphetamine hydrochloride, better known as shabu, 35 aluminum foil strips with traces of shabu residue and various drug paraphernalia.

Operatives also arrested inside the house Benjie Delos Reyes Alit, 43, Eduardo Matias Labjata, 46 and Randy Quiambao Rili, 26, all of whom are believed to be working for the couple.

"The deactivation of the De Torres's drug den denied its users easy access to local supply of shabu in Barangay Fort Bonifacio," said Cacdac who also commended the NISF efforts in helping in the arrest of one of their own.
