PDEA spokesperson Derrick Arnold Carreon in a report yesterday identified the suspects as JC Andre Beltran, Fahad Sakip Malik, Liza Ocampo, and John Robert Vicente.

The suspects were nabbed in Quirino Avenue, Barangay San Dionisio at around 5:10 p.m. where 500 grams of shabu, one cellular phone and buy-bust money were confiscated.

PDEA agent Jeffrey Baguiddudol said that the suspects were nabbed after anti-narcotics operatives tailed them and conducted a strict surveillance for one week.

The suspects remained mum when authorities inquired who supplies them with illegal drugs.

They are now facing charges for violation of Section 5 in relation to Section 26 Article II of Republic Act 9165.
