A notorious drug peddler in Las Piñas City (Metro Manila) was arrested in an operation by the Station Anti-Illegal Drugs and Special Operations Tasked Group (SAID-SOTG) on Monday.
Chief Inspector Roque Tome, chief of SAID-SOTG, identified the suspect as Wilson Llaneta alias Pugo of T.S. Cruz Subdivision, Barangay Almanza Dos. He was nabbed along with his live-in partner Ronalyn Lazatin.
Tome said Llaneta was arrested by virtue of a warrant of arrest issued by Executive Judge Salvador Timbang of Las Piñas Regional Trial Court.
During the search operation, authorities recovered an undetermined quantity of suspected “shabu,” a weighing scale and drug paraphernalia.
Tension gripped the area during the arrest when village officials of Almanza Dos intervened, claiming that the operation was not coordinated with them.
