ELEVEN persons were arrested by the police in separate drug operations in Metro Cebu yesterday. Suspects Ryan Lacio, 24; Joey Caparida, 27; and a 16-year-old minor, all from Barangay Upper Lamac, were arrested by Consolacion police led by Senior Insp.

A follow-up operation was conducted against the alleged cohorts of the suspects in Sitio Lumbang, Barangay Pulpogan that led to the arrest of Jimboy Naingue, 19, who allegedly yielded four small sachets of suspected shabu and a .38 revolver. His companion, a certain Toto Padilla, managed to escape.

The team also arrested four persons having a pot session inside a shanty in Upper Lamac. Rolando Valiente, 38; Billy Ordenaria, 24; Marvin Bucod, 26; and Serge Louie Inot allegedly yielded two small sachets of suspected shabu worth around P12,000 and drug paraphernalia.
