CEBU CITY, Philippines — A former construction worker, who shifted work allegedly as a drug courier, was arrested in an anti-illegal drug operation on Friday afternoon (May 3) in Sitio Riverside, Barangay Hipodromo, Cebu City.

Jhon Ariel Delalamon, 25, of Barangay Hipodromo, was caught with 400 grams of suspected shabu during the buy-bust operation, said Police Lieutenant Colonel Glenn Gonzales, Police Drug Enforcement Group Visayas (PDEG Visayas) during an interview with CDN Digital.
