Also arrested were Acosta’s live-in partner Vanessa Bayani, 28, and two other alleged cohorts namely Marianne Salas, 34; and Randy Delos Santos, 37.

The arrest came after a confidential informant reported to police about the illegal drug transactions in McArthur Highway Malinta in Valenzuela City.

Elements of the Valenzuela police then conducted a buy-bust operation in the area where an undercover policeman bought shabu from the suspects.

Seized were six pieces of shabu, marked money worth P500, PNP identification card of Acosta, a Yamaha motorcycle and a Honda motorcycle.

The suspects were brought to the Valenzuela police station as charges for violation of the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002 are being readied against them.
