BACOLOD CITY – Suspected shabu weighing 415 grams valued at P2,822,000 was seized by the police from a 36-year-old woman in a buy-bust operation on Magsaysay Road in Barangay Singcang-Airport here Tuesday night, July 5.

The Special Operations Unit-6 of the Philippine National Police- Drug Enforcement Group identified the suspect as Christine Dacumos of Barangay 2 here.

Police Lt. Col. Arnel Solis, Police Regional Office (PRO)-Western Visayas (Region 6) spokesperson, said police received information a few weeks ago regarding Dacumos’ alleged involvement in the illegal drugs trade.

Solis said that a case surveillance was conducted to confirm the report until it led to the operation.

The operation was conducted in coordination with the Regional Drug Enforcement Unit-6, Regional Special Operations Group-6, and the Bacolod City Drug Enforcement Unit.

With the huge volume of illegal drugs recovered, police said Dacumos can be considered a high value individual.

Solis said that Dacumos’ husband was jailed and police are checking the spouse’s offense.

Last month, the Bacolod City police seized a total of 1,599.142 grams of illegal drugs worth P10,874,165.60 from 50 persons, including 29 drug pushers and 21 drug users.

A total of 80 cases were filed in court for violation of various sections of Republic Act (RA) No. 9165 or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002.
