SAN FERNANDO CITY, La Union: A beleaguered father, whose son was arrested for illegal drugs, was also jailed after Philippines Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) agents conducted an entrapment. PDEA Region I Dir. Jeoffrey Tacio identified the suspects as Jack Warren Soriano, 23 and his father Jack Lord, 42, both residents of Barangay Dili, Bauang, La Union. Jack Warren was arrested in a buy-bust in a San Juan, La Union grill bar for possession of shabu sachets while his father was nabbed for trying to bribe the PDEA agents with P80,000 cash for the outright settlement of his son’s case.
