Three high-value personalities for illegal drugs were arrested in an early Sunday buy-bust operation in Panabo City, Davao Del Norte.

The Panabo City Police Station, Davao Norte Police Provincial Office, together with PDEA Davao del Norte arrested drug suspects Ronald Peñalver, Jeremy Dulatre, and Joshua Lisen.

Peñalver is tagged as responsible for maintaining the drug den where the anti-criminality operation was conducted.

Authorities seized some P88,400.00 worth of Shabu during the operation.

All three suspects will face charges in violation to Republic Act 9165, known as the “Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002”.

“We noted another major accomplishment in our drive against illegal drugs. The good network of sources and effective coordination with our counterpart at the PDEA have been instrumental to successful drug operations,” PNP OIC Lt. Gen. Vicente Danao Jr. said.
