Oniel Candezar, a resident of Sitio Puntod, was arrested after P340,000 worth of suspected shabu was found inside his house, said Police Captain Francis Renz Talosig, Mambaling Police Precinct chief, during an interview with CDN Digital on May 8, Wednesday.

Talosig said they served a search warrant against Candezar at his house at past 6 p.m. on May 8 after they received information that Candezar was allegedly the one who used the four boys caught with illegal drugs last May 1 in Sitio Puntod.

He said that the search warrant was issued by Judge Pamela Baring of Branch 21 of the Regional Trial Court in Cebu City.

Talosig said that Candezar was allegedly the supplier of illegal drugs in Sitio Puntod and nearby sitios of the barangay.

Candezar was detained at the Mambaling Police Precinct detention cell pending the filing of charges. /dbs
