Journey frontman Arnel Pineda’s younger brother was handcuffed by authorities Tuesday evening after he was caught selling over 20 grams of shabu to an undercover policeman.
A report from Lt. Col. Bernouli Abalos, station commander of the Kamuning police in Quezon City, identified the suspect as Rusmon Pineda, 51.
It was Abalos who confirmed that Pineda is the brother of the Journey singer-songwriter.
Pineda was caught with Rojimar Frilles, 30, a barangay tanod of Barangay Sacred Heart along Scout Santiago corner Marathon Street, Barangay Obrero at 11 p.m.
The two are now detained at the Kamuning police station in violation of the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002.
