Faeldon Jr. ‘maintained drug den’ – police
LEGAZPI CITY – The son and namesake of Bureau of Corrections (BuCor) chief Nicanor Faeldon Sr. was charged Saturday with operating and maintaining a drug den, police said Sunday.
Nicanor Faeldon Jr. was apprehended by police at an alleged drug den on December 14 with five other people.
He was charged with violating Section 6 (Maintenance of a Den) of the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002 or Republic Act 9165, according to Chief Inspector Maria Luisa Calubaquib, Bicol police spokesperson.
Meanwhile, suspect Russel Lanuzo was charged with illegal possession and use of illegal drugs and paraphernalia, while Alan Valdez was charged with drug use and visiting a drug den.
Calubaquib said the police filed the charges before the city prosecutors’ office on Saturday. The cases would be filed in court on Monday.
Calubaquib said Faeldon’s son and the two other suspects were still being held at the Naga City detention facility.
Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Director General Oscar Albayalde said that Faeldon Jr. would not get special treatment from them.
“No special treatment. Wala whatsoever,” Albayalde said after the Simbang Gabi in Camp Crame on Sunday.
The police chief said that Faeldon never called him up to ask for any favor regarding his son, who was arrested in an alleged drug den in Naga City.
