The National Capital Region Police Chief, PMGEN DEBOLD M SINAS lauded the anti-illegal drugs campaign of Batasan Police Station-6, Quezon City Police Disrict which resulted in the confiscation of around Php 210,000 worth of suspected illegal drugs at about 9:30PM of September 23, 2020 along #26 Adelfa Street (Abanay), Barangay Culiat, Quezon City.

The operation stemmed from an information gathered from confidential informants regarding the involvement of the suspects in illegal drug activities within the area. Consequently, the information was validated through a series of intelligence monitoring and case build-up. Thereafter, an operation was ploted wherein one of the police officers acted as the poseur buyer in a deal established with the suspects.

After due coordination with PDEA NCR, a joint buy-bust operation ensued together with the operatives of PS-6, QCPD Station Drug Enforcement Unit and personnel of the PS-3 QCPD Station Drug Enforcement Unit which resulted in the arrest of a newly identified drug personality who was later identified as BENJAMIN PARCON y VESTAS alias Nonoy, male, 22years old (October 13, 1997), single, delivery driver and a resident of #26 Adelfa Street, Visayas Ave., Barangay Culiat, Quezon City.

Recovered from him were the following pieces of evidence thus:

  1. Four (4) pcs large bubble wrap plastic containing suspected dried Marijuana; and
  2. One (1) pc Php500 bill bearing serial number DK162351 with initials of PB and Nine (9) pcs 1000 boodle money, utilized as Buy-bust money.

The confiscated items were duly marked and inventoried in the presence of mandatory witnesses, Kagawad Marichu Montehermoso of Barangay Culiat, QC and Mr. Christopher Yu of Tuklas news National.

The seized illegal drug suspected to be marijuana has an aggregate estimated weight of more or less 1.75 kilograms with a DDB value amounting to Php 210,000 pesos. It was turned over to the PNP Crime laboratory for confirmatory testing while the suspect was detained at Police Station 6, QCPD pending the filing of appropriate charges.

“I commend the anti-illegal drug effort of QCPD in going against newly identified drug personalities in their area of responsibility. Continuous intelligence monitoring is really indispensable in institutionalizing our initiatives to ensure that the Metro is free from this deadly substance. I am elated for the unwavering dedication of our police officers in our fight against illegal drugs,” said PMGEN SINAS.
