Drug suspects caught in the act of using drugs

MANILA, Philippines — Two drug suspects were caught in the act of using alleged illegal drugs in Barangay Pag-asa, Binangonan, Rizal.

The suspects were identified as Marc Adrian Lipio, 26, and Narl Jay Fernandes, 24.

Two sachets of suspected shabu and other drug paraphernalia were confiscated by the authorities in the operation.

“Yung ating mga tao, may mga impormante kasi kami — mga concerned citizen na nagsabi na mayroon daw na naggagamitan ng shabu. Ayun, kayo naman nakakita kanina. Inamin naman mismo nung dalawa na talagang gumagamit sila. At yung nakuha sa kanila, kabibili lang daw nila,” said Binangonan police chief PSupt. Eduardo Deluna Balita.

(Our informants, they are concerned citizens who told us about these shabu drug users.  As you have seen earlier, the two admitted to using illegal drugs.  The drugs that were confiscated from them were newly bought.

Based on the investigation, a drug dealer alias George sold drugs to the suspects.

The two admitted to possessing the seized drugs.

“Opo. Minsan na nga lang. Wala po eh. Natyempohan e,” said Lipio.

(Yes, but we only use it sometimes. It was bad timing.)

The two will face charges for violation of the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002. — UNTV News & Rescue

Businessman and alleged drug lord Peter Lim

 

Police failed to find businessman Peter Lim at two of his houses in Cebu to serve the warrant of arrest against him for his alleged involvement in illegal drugs.

The caretaker told policemen that Lim has not been home for a long time.

“Taod na taod na daw nga wa muari si Peter Lim. Sa ten years niya almost ten years nga pagstay diri wala pa daw na muari si Peter Lim, ang iya ra dawng mama ang naa diri. Mahug ug kanang care taker ani nga property (In ten years that he’s been staying there he has not seen Peter Lim come home. Only Lim’s mother stays there, said the caretaker),” Mabolo Police Station Commander PCInsp. Dindo Juanito Alaras said.

The warrant was released by the Makati City Regional Trial Court after finding probable cause for his alleged involvement in illegal drug trade in the country.

“Mag sige pa ta ug monitor karun kung asa iyang whereabouts ani kuan kay atu ni pangitaon ning mga properties ug establishments nga panag-iya ni Peter Lim (We will continue to monitor his whereabouts. We will locate all his properties and establishments), Alaras said.

They will also submit a report to Makati RTC.

“Ang gihatag nga order natu gikan sa court is 10 days upon received pero nareceieve ni nato last Friday, hapon. Pag muabot ta sa 10 days is i-return natu nga warrant nya i-sight pud natu ang reference kung nganu wala natu na-arrest ni nga personality. Nana na sa court kung mugawas sila alias warrant (The court gave us 10 days upon receipt, but we only this [warrant] last Friday afternoon. If after 10 days we still haven’t arrested Lim, we have to return the warrant and explain why we have not done so yet. It’s up to the court if they will release an alias warrant) said Aras.

Lim is facing charges of conspiracy to commit illegal drug trading. – Gladys Mae Toabi

Ozamis City Councilor Ricardo “Ardot” Parojinog is now under the custody of the Philippine National Police (PNP) following his deportation by the Taiwanese government for violation of immigration laws.

Back in the Philippines, Parojinog is facing drug related cases and charges of murder, illegal possession of firearms and explosives.

He had been on the run after a series of raids by the PNP in July 2018 led to the death of his brother, Ozamiz Mayor Reynaldo “Aldong” Parojinog, and 14 of their relatives.

Last September, Parojinog escaped to Taiwan aboard a small boat assisted by two people who transferred him to a bigger fishing boat.

“Apparently, tama ‘yung nakuha nating intelligence information na siya ay lumabas through the backdoor at may tumulong sa kaniya at nagbangka going to Taiwan,” said PNP chief, PDg Oscar Albaylade.

Parojinog went into hiding for several months at a rented apartment in Pingtung, Taiwan until he was arrested and jailed by Taiwanese police on May 23 for violation of immigration laws.

Now that he’s back in the country, the PNP assured the fugitive councilor’s safety.

“It is incumbent upon the PNP to ensure the safety and security of Ricardo Parojinog in the best interest of justice so he can stand trial for his transgressions,” said Albayalde.

Authorities are hoping for Parojinog’s cooperation in sharing information related to illegal drug operations and other criminalities in the country.

“Malaking grupo ito. This is all part of the anti-illegal drugs campaign of this administration, and anti-criminality. Hindi lang naman kasi illegal drugs ang naso-solve dito, pati ‘yung mga murder cases na nangyari, pati ‘yung mga murder cases na na-involve itong Parojinog group na ito,” the PNP chief said.

As a precautionary measure, Parojinog is currently detained at the PNP Custodial Center in Camp Crame while awaiting court decision on where he would be detained and tried. — Asher Cadapan, Jr.

Aquino said Operation Private Eye has been effective in encouraging private individuals to report illegal drug activities in their communities.

“Iyong operation private eye, of course, there will be more civilians who will collaborate with us, who will give us information,” Aquino said.

The PDEA Director appreciates the efforts of the civilian sector in information gathering for the success of their anti-drug operations.

”Marami kasing alam yung mga civilians na hindi namin alam. but if these civilians would help us malaman kung anong particular operations na bibirahin namin, mas madali naming makukuha,” he added.

PDEA encourages more participation from the community by reporting to the nearest PDEA regional office or call the agency’s 24/7 hotline numbers 0999-888 PDEA (7332) for Smart subscribers; 0925-573 PDEA (7332) for Sun subscribers; and 0927-9150616 for Globe subscribers. – Charlie Barredo / Marje Pelayo
