QUEZON CITY, Philippines – Three individuals including a security guard were arrested in a drug buy-bust operation in Barangay San Roque, Cubao, Quezon City on Sunday evening (May 26).
According to Police Capt. Ramon Aquiatan Jr., an informant tipped them about the illegal drug operations in the area where 30-year-old Rayan Timan was allegedly a known drug peddler.
He was operating together with two drug surrenders, Roel Viernes alias Balot and Aldyn Ramos who were also arrested in the operation.
“Itong si Timan ang talagang pinaka-source ng dalawa kasi itong si Balot, itong si Roel, ay parang runner niya. Pagka may bumibili doon sa guwardiya, si Balot ang nagtatakbo,” Aquiatan said.
(Timan was the main source [of drugs] while alias Balot or Roel served as his runner. When a customer buys from the guard, Balot handles the transaction.)
Authorities seized about four grams of suspected shabu from the suspects with a street value of P27,000.
The suspects will face charges for violation of Republic Act 9165 or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002.
Meanwhile, the public is encouraged to report any suspicious activities in their area through the Philippine National Police (PNP) Hotline Number 117. — Marje Pelayo (with details from Asher Cadapan Jr.)

The Manila Water Co. announced on Thursday that 20 villages in Quezon City will experience temporary water service interruptions as it undertakes emergency leak repairs.
In an advisory posted on its Facebook page, Manila Water said the joint leak repair and pipe interconnection/relocation at the Elliptical Road in Quezon City was due to an accidental breakage on a major pipeline caused by one of the Department of Public Works and Highways’ (DPWH) contractors.
“Due to an accidental breakage caused by a DPWH contractor, damaging our major pipeline at Elliptical Road corner Commonwealth Avenue (northbound) in Quezon City, Manila Water is currently undertaking emergency leak repairs which will result in temporary water service interruption,” the advisory read.
The water distributor said the repair works is expected to be completed on May 24 (Friday) at 6 a.m.
Affected villages are listed below:
Old Capitol Site
Teachers Village East
Teachers Village West
The Manila Water said the water service interruption will affect 242,000 people in 44,056 households, commercial and business establishments.
“The interconnection of the new 900mm relocated pipeline at Elliptical Road corner North Avenue, which was previously planned for May 24 to 25, will also be undertaken at the same time to minimize impact to the affected customers,” it added.
The Manila Water advised affected residents to store enough water as some of these areas may still experience service interruptions even after the restoration “due to the still-limited raw water supply.”
