Two college students were arrested for possession of marijuana in Tabuelan town on Tuesday morning.

Ervin John Laput, 20, and Anthony Bensulan, 21, who were on board a motorcycle, were flagged down by Tabuelan police in a check point.

Laput and Bensulan yielded a bag of marijuana leaves and stalks.

Tabuelan police chief Emmanuel Rabaya said the suspects tried to evade the checkpoint.

The suspects also claimed that they were supposed to give the marijuana to their colleague for medical use.

Rabaya said Laput and Bensulan were planning to sell marijuana to Barangay Poblacion that was celebrating its annual fiesta that time.

Police investigation revealed that the suspects did not plant the marijuana themselves.

The marijuana leaves and stalks, weighing 223 grams, were worth P11,000.

The suspects were said to be college students in the neighboring town of Tuburan.
