The National Capital Region Police Chief PMGEN DEBOLD M SINAS lauds another successful anti-illegal drugs operation of the personnel of Mandaluyong City Police Station, Eastern Police District which led to the arrest of a high value drug personality at around 9:30 AM of July 10, 2020 Along Blk. 34, Brgy. Addition Hills, Mandaluyong City.

According to the initial report, the operation stemmed from a report of a regular confidential informant regarding the illegal drug activities of the suspect.

This prompted the police officers to plot a buy-bust operation against a certain alyas “Noli” a newly identified high value individual, in close coordination with PDEA wherein one of the police officers acted as the poseur-buyer of illegal drugs.

After the police officer managed to buy a piece of transparent plastic sachet containing suspected shabu, he immediately signalled for the arrest of the suspect who was later identified as NOLI CANLAS y NAVARRO alias “Noli”, male, 55 years old (DOB 06/24/65), married, carpenter and presently residing at #431 B. Balut, Tondo, Manila.

Recovered from him were the items he sold weighing approximately 1.8 grams with a DDB value of Php 12,240.00 and the Php 5,000.00 worth of buy-bust money.

Thereafter, a mandatory body inspection was made revealing ten more pieces of heat sealed transparent plastic sachets containing white crystalline substance suspected to be shabu with an aggregate weight of more or less 321 grams and DDB value of Php 2,182,800.00.

Moreover, an improvised glass pipe was also recovered from two black sling bags in his possession.

The seized items were inventoried and marked in the presence of mandatory witnesses, Brgy. Kagawad Ailynne Carandang of Brgy. Addition Hills and DOJ representative Ma. Ayesa Dizon in the place of arrest before it was turned over to the crime laboratory for confirmatory testing.

The suspect was detained in Mandaluyong City Police Station and a case for violation of RA 9165 Sec. 5 and Sec 11 was consequently prepared for filing against him before the Prosecutor’s Office of Mandaluyong City.

“I commend the personnel of Mandaluyong City Police Station for the series of successful buy-bust operations which led to the arrest of this high value target and seizure of more than 2.1M pesos worth of suspected illegal drugs. Your continuous effort in the conduct of anti-illegal drug operations strengthens our commitment to free the Metro from all forms of criminality and illegal drugs,” said PMGEN SINAS.
