MANILA, Philippines – A dismissed cop was among the six people arrested in a drug buy-bust operation in Quezon City on Sunday.
The Quezon City Police District (QCPD) Station 7 identified the suspects as Calixto Peralta Jr., a former policeman, Rey Peralta, Carolyn Peralta, Carol Santiago, Alexander Bonoan, and Marlon Puyat.
Authorities said Rey Peralta was the main target in the operation. The 6 suspects were nabbed inside a drug den that Peralta allegedly operates in Banahaw Street, Barangay San Martin de Pores.
Confiscated from the group are 14 sachets of suspected shabu with an estimated street value of P7,000; P900 cash and the P500 marked money.
Peralta’s neighbor told the police they noticed several people coming in and out of the suspect’s house to buy illegal drugs.
He admitted to using shabu but denied the confiscated drugs belongs to him.
