‘Neophyte’ drug personality falls in Talisay drug raid

THE Drug Enforcement Unit of the Talisay City Police Station conducted a raid in Sitio Mananga 2 in Barangay Tabunok on Saturday night, January 7, 2023, that resulted in the arrest of an 18-year-old woman.

Lieutenant Elwood Ebona, the unit’s team leader who led the operation, identified the suspect as Kessha Mae Francisco, a resident of Barangay Ermita, Cebu City.

Police seized 25 grams of shabu with a standard drug price of P170,000 from the suspect.

Ebona said they have been monitoring Francisco’s movements after her name cropped up several times during their investigations.

He said Francisco reportedly got involved in the illegal drug trade last October and operated in Barangay Ermita and its neighboring barangays and in Talisay City.

He said she could dispose of 50 grams of shabu every week. (BBT/PJB)
