BAGUIO CITY August 29 – A drug surrenderer, who is also a member of a local drug group, was collared by anti-narcotics agents from the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency Cordillera and local police at Hillside, here Saturday night.
Arjhay Fedelino Simeon alias Chester, 21 years old, jobless, and a resident of Hillside, Baguio City was arrested after selling a plastic sachet containing suspected shabu worth P1,000.00 to an undercover agent.
He is now detained at the Baguio City Jail and will be facing a case for violation of Section 5 (Sale of Dangerous Drugs), Article II of Republic Act Number 9165 otherwise known as the “Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002.”
PDEA would like to remind the public that a drug surrenderer is not immune from criminal liability once he gets involved in the illegal drug trade after presenting themselves to authorities.
