- A female suspect was a******d in a buy-bust operation in Davao City

A 34-year-old female was a******d during a buy-bust operation held Tuesday night at Barangay Pampanga, Davao City.
Recovered from the suspect, alias “Gina” were 11 sachets of suspected s***u worth P10,000.
The police declined to provide the real name of the suspect while investigation is on-going.
“Matagal na siyang noted kaya naaresto namin. Lumalabas ang pangalan niya sa ibang nahuli namin,” said Chief Insp. Emerson Pugong, Chief of Sasa police. [She has long been noted that’s why we a******d her. Her name was always mentioned by previously captured illegal drug peddlers].
In her defense, Gina said that she was only forced to do the selling of illegal drugs due to poverty.
“Mahirap talaga kasi ang asawa ko ay isang tindero lang. Kamakailan lang din, nasunogan kami ng bahay,” she said. [We are poor and my husband is only a street vendor. Only recently, a fire razed our house].
The couple has 3 children.
Gina is facing charges for violating Republic Act 9165 or Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002.
