Three arrested in Dasmariñas, Cavite, drug raid

Three people were arrested as the homes of suspected drug pushers were raided by Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) operatives and Cavite police Monday at the Summer Wind Subdivision in Dasmariñas, Cavite.   The suspects are now facing charges of violating RA 9165 or Comprehensive Dangerous Act of 2002.   A report on GMA News’ “24 Oras” showed that upon searching the home of suspected pusher Luz Orlaez, PDEA found 10 grams or 22 sachets of what appears to be shabu concealed in cushions and in a pouch. PDEA also caught two men taking drugs inside the house, the report said .Along with Orlaez, Regine Peñalosa was also arrested. The suspects did not deny the charges.   “Napakabait kong tao, hindi ako masama, kaya nga lang kung bakit ako nakapaghanapbuhay nang ganyan,” a tearful Orlaez said.   PDEA also searched the home of another suspected drug pusher, Arceli Dayrit, who is allegedly connected to the Sarno Alindog Camaysa drug syndicate.   PDEA arrested the alleged pusher and seized over 5 grams or eight sachets of what appears to be shabu.   “Malinis ang pagkatao ko po, wala po akong ganyang illegal,” Dayrit said.   According to the PDEA, one of its informants tried to buy laboratory-verified shabu worth P25,000 to obtain a search warrant.   “Nakabili tayo agad through confidential informant na halos nakaka-direkta sa kanila,” said a PDEA agent.   In a message to drug pushers, a PDEA official said, “Ito’y paalala lang sa inyo na kahit kayo po nagtatrabaho, marami kayong nasisirang buhay. So kung sa inyo ay hanapbuhay po, marami pong batang nasisira ang buhay nila dahil sa kagagawan niyo.”   An earlier report on radio dzBB said that PDEA agents seized P100,000 worth of methamphetamine hydrochloride or shabu. — AL/VS, GMA News
