As the local barangay election draws near, law enforcers arrested another elected barangay official in a buy-bust operation on October 20 in Marinduque for violating the anti-drug law. Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) Director General Undersecretary Arturo Cacdac Jr. identified the suspect as Jerrico Molbog alias “Iko,” 37 years old, a native of Mogpog, Marinduque and the current Barangay Chairman of Barangay Nangka Uno, Mogpog, Marinduque. He has been under close surveillance by the PDEA and among the watch-listed drug personalities in Marinduque. “Molbog is the first incumbent Barangay Captain who was arrested by our operatives since the campaign period started last week. He is the eighth barangay captain arrested since January of this year and he is also a re-electionist candidate,” Cacdac said.
