Upon arrival at No. 89 Roosevelt Ave., Brgy. Sta Cruz, Quezon City at around 4:00PM on October 13, 2020 the duo was able to meet JR. The undercover operative was able to buy PHP12,000. worth of shabu from the suspect, and at the given pre-arranged signal, the suspect was arrested.

The arrested drug personality was identified as Marvin Bernal y Bolus, also known as JR, 30 years old, single, jobless, native of Manila and resident of No. 89 Roosevelt Ave., Brgy. Sta Cruz, Quezon City.
