Young drug pusher yields P183,000 worth of shabu in Bacolod buy-bust

BACOLOD CITY -- A young drug pusher yielded 27 grams of shabu valued at P183,600 during a buy-bust operation in Barangay Singcang-Airport here on Monday, Sept. 26.

The subject was identified as Reymart Esporas, 20, of Barangay Pahanocoy here.

Lt. Joven Mogato, head of City Drug Enforcement Unit (CDEU), said that Esporas is a newly-identified individual and at the same time a street level individual.

He was allegedly engaging in the illegal drug trade for about a month now, Mogato said.

Mogato said that Esporas was arrested for robbery when he was still a minor, but he was able to escape the facility.

He was again arrested in 2020 after police served him an arrest warrant for robbery, Mogato added.

He was released from jail this year, and is now under probation, Mogato said.
