CEBU CITY, Philippines— A raid and a buy bust operation in a drug den in Dauis town in Bohol by a team from the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency in Central Visayas (PDEA-7) on Tuesday, May 5, 2020, led to the arrest of five suspected drug personalities from the area.

In a joint operation with the Bohol Provincial Police, and Regional Drug Enforcement Unit (RDEU), PDEA-7 was able to arrest the five at around 6 p.m. in Purok 7, Barangay Tinago.
