What started out as a drug buy-bust operation on Thursday resulted instead in subsequent anti-drug operations in the outskirts of Dumaguete City. {{more}}

Three suspected drug personalities were arrested in possession of 16 sachets of shabu and P2,000 marked money.

They were identified as Renato Sarne, Ivanhoe Inocando, Marlon Sta. Ana and Rennel Quintanilla, presently residing in the housing site in Cadawinonan, this city.

Operatives of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI), the Philippine National Police (PNP) and the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) rushed to the garbage dumpsite in Candau-ay after a transaction between the poseur-buyer and Sarne was finalized.

Confiscated from Sarne was a sachet of shabu worth P1,000.

Following negotiations, Sarne texted Inocando and Sta. Ana to deliver more stuff to him without knowing that the operatives were waiting for them at the dumpsite.

Upon arrival of the two, another buy bust operation was conducted. Sarne managed to escape during the scuffle and is now at large.

Confiscated from Inocando and Sta. Ana were 13 sachets of shabu worth P13,000 and the P1,000 marked money used in the buy-bust.

The two then cooperated with authorities by ordering more shabu from what they believe as the supplier/collector, identified as Rennel Quintannila, a resident of Purok Orchids in Calindagan.

Follow-up operation headed by NBI chief lawyer Dominador Cimafranca and PDEA chief Ferdinand Kintanar showed positive results.

Quintanilla was nabbed in possession of two more sachets of shabu, and a home made Cal. 38 revolver with four rounds of live ammunition.

In an interview, both Quintanilla and Ivanhoe admitted having made the transactions in the presence of the operatives.

Quintanilla also admitted having owned the motorcycle where the Cal. 38 revolver was recovered.

The suspects will be charged with violations of Section 5 and Section 11 of RA 9165.

This is the first major anti-drug operation conducted in Dumaguete after the May 10 elections. (PNA)
