A WOMAN drug den owner, a suspected dealer and seven alleged users were arrested by the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) during a buy-bust operation in Zamboanga City recently. PDEA Director General Isidro Lapeña identified the suspects as Nearesa Renacia Cervantes, 50, alleged drug den owner; Judy Yap Tan, 52, suspected pusher; Erickson Climaco, 37; Reynaldo Garcia, 39; Reneboy Gasoh, 45; Marlon Macatangay, 37; Jason Modanza, 22; Marichu Nishimoto, 37, and Sol Solaiman, 32, alleged drug users. Lapena said anti-narcotics operatives of PDEA Regional Office 9 conducted an entrapment operation against Cervantes and Tan in the former’s house doubling as a drug den along Boholano Drive, Barangay Camino Nuevo, Zamboanga City. Confiscated from the suspects were 15 heat-sealed plastic sachets of shabu weighing worth P70,000 and various drug paraphernalia.
