Five persons were arrested in a buy-bust operation in barangay Gun-ob, Lapu-Lapu City last Friday afternoon.

Arrested were Kevin Tampos, 20; Niño Yara, 18; Jopeth Omingil, 23; Jomar Baguio, 21; and Arip Ambol, 28.

The subject of the operation was Tampos, whom police said had been involved in selling illegal drugs.

Police said Tampos agreed to sell illegal drugs to a poseur-buyer in his house where the four other suspects were caught using shabu.

Police said 11 sachets of suspected shabu were seized from Tampos, while Yara yielded 15 packs believed to contain shabu.

The arrested persons were detained at the Lapu-Lapu City Police Office.

In Bogo City, northern Cebu, a 25-year-old man and his 17-year-old alleged cohort were arrested after they sold two packs of suspected shabu to a policeman who acted as buyer.

Redentor Ermac Rosalejos and the boy were arrested last Friday afternoon in barangay Gairan.

Police said Rosalejos was previously jailed for grave threats.  Packs of suspected shabu were seized from the man in the first arrest, said PO3 Elymar Mendoza.

In the recent arrest, four packs of suspected shabu and a .45 caliber pistol were recovered from the man.

Police said the boy’s father is currently jailed for drug charges.
