The female driver who was arrested for hitting a traffic enforcer in Malate, Manila on Thursday was found to be a drug courier, police bared Friday (May 28.)
Manila Police District Special Mayor’s Team (MPD-SMaRT) said the cohorts of Pauline Mae S. Altamirano, the arrested driver, were nabbed in an entrapment operation on Friday on Cecelia Muñoz St. in Ermita.
Police identified the arrested suspects as Rendor E. Sanchez, 30; Jason S. Dela Cruz, 29; and Marlon A. De Guzman, 19. All of them, like Salamero, are from Calamba, Laguna.
Recovered from the four suspected drug dealers were five grams of shabu worth P34,000.
The Manila City Public Information Office (PIO) said authorities found drugs in Altamirano’s bag.
Authorities pretended to be Altamirano and texted her cohorts to pick up the bag from the MPD-SMaRT office which led to the latter’s arrest.
Altamirano’s cohorts were brought to MPD-SMaRT’s office for proper investigation.
