Four men were arrested in a buy-bust Tuesday evening in Barangay Sta Monica, Novaliches in Quezon City.
Michael Asis, 40, Marvin Bendo, 23, Jasmin de Jesus, 36, and Vincent Miabel, 28, all residents of Novaliches, were arrested in the operation conducted by the Station Drug Enforcement Unit (SDEU) of Novaliches Police Station 4.
The police had information of the illegal transaction going on that prompted Novaliches cops to set up a buy-bust timed for 10:00 PM on Tuesday at the Ibong Pilak Street in Barangay Sta. Monica in Quezon City.
An officer acting as poseur-buyer bought P5,200 worth of methamphetamine locally known as shabu from Asis and his cohorts that led to their arrest.
Aside from the buy-bust money, seized also from the suspects were five grams of shabu valued at P34,000, a caliber .38 Armscor hand gun with four bullets and a cellular phone used in the drug deal.
Those arrested will be charged under Republic Act 9165 or The Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002.
