The subject was identified as Ereneo Pranisa, 34, of Barangay Tangub here.

Police Capt. John Christopher Masangkay, head of Police Station 5, said that Pranisa is considered a high value individual, following the confiscation of more than 50 grams of illegal drugs.

As to the source of the illegal drugs, Pranisa’s source is from a contact inside the New Bilibid Prison (NBP) in Muntinlupa City, and was reportedly being sent to him through a courier service.

Masangkay said they are checking the background of Pranisa if he has a criminal record. He is detained at Police Station 5.

The operation was also in coordination with the City Drug Enforcement Unit (CDEU) of the Bacolod City Police Office (BCPO).
