CEBU CITY, Philippines – A former Binibining Cebu candidate and a young man were arrested in separate drug busts at dawn today for allegedly selling high-grade marijuana.

The arrest of Teri Marina Silva Colmenares aka “Tery,” 22, culminated the series of operations where she was pinpointed as the source of the high-grade marijuana.

Colmenares was a candidate of the 2018 Binibining Cebu representing Carmen town.

Senior Inspector Dexter Basirgo, chief of the Guadalupe Police Precinct that conducted the operations, said it began on December 8 when they received a complaint from a rape victim who claimed she was molested twice by a disk jockey of a resto-bar by drugging her.
