The operation stemmed after a regular confidential informant appeared personally in Kamuning Police Station and reported about the illegal drug activities of a certain a.ka. “BOY”, particularly selling marijuana along the area of Eastwood. The operatives coordinated with PDEA RO – NCR to determine the veracity of the report. Probe reveals, that the subject person who was identified as “BOY” was under drugs watch-list.

This prompted the operatives to conduct buy-bust operation against the suspect. One of the operatives acted as poseur buyer and established a deal. However, before they arrived in the agreed place, the operatives received a phone call from “Boy” and informed them that the place for the drug transaction will change to Commando St., Brgy.

Upon arrival in the said location, the poseur buyer met Junsay, and minutes later, the subject person a.k.a “Boy” also arrived. After the transaction was completed, the operatives effected the arrest against the subject person along with his cohort.

Confiscated from the suspects are the following pieces of evidence:

Likewise, I would also want to thank the public for their continuous support in giving relevant information for our police operations.” PMGEN SINAS said.
