Police Lieutenant Colonel Janette Rafter, CCPO Deputy Director for Operation, disclosed that the two ex-convicts were convicted of drug raps.

Inesola reportedly served 7 years at theCebu City Jail in Brgy. Kalunasan while Abejero was locked up for 5 years. Both suspects were released after completion of their sentences on November 2023.

However, instead of changing their wicked ways, Inesola and Abejero allegedly went back to peddling drugs.

According to Rafter, the two ex-convicts operated within the barangay where they lived after getting out of jail.

During the buy-bust on Thursday, operatives confiscated around 105 grams of suspected shabu with Standard Drug Price (SDP) of P714,000 from the suspects.

Rafter further disclosed that authorities were able to obtain information on the the suspects’ supplier of drugs during the tactical interrogation. Police will be conducting verification on the personality that was named by the arrested persons,  she added.

As of this writing, Inesola and Abejero are kept in police custody pending the filing of appropriate charges against them.

The two ex-convicts will be facing charges for the possession and sale of illegal drugs, according to the police report.

A top police official who requested not to be identified because he was not authorized to speak on the matter, said that the sale and distribution of illegal drugs has again become rampant nowadays. However, he credited this to the more active campaign of the police against illegal drugs as well as the support of the community.
