KALIBO, Aklan – Another “high-value” illegal drug suspect was caught in this capital town.

The 41-year-old Emmanuelito “Manny” Sualog resisted arrest but members of police antidrug units subdued him.

Sualog, a resident of Barangay Camanci Norte, Numancia town, was No. 7 in the provincial police’s drug watch list.

He sold two plastic packs of suspected shabu to an undercover police officer for P1,000.

Police surveilled Sualog, a native of Buruanga, for weeks before the operation around 5:40 p.m. on Monday on corner Acevedo Street-Roxas Avenue, said Chief Inspector Terence Paul Sta. Ana, Kalibo police chief.

Operatives from the regional and provincial Drug Enforcement Units (DEUs) and Kalibo and Numancia police stations’ special DEUs accosted Sualog.

“It took at least four police officers to subdue him,” Sta. Ana said.

Sta. Ana vowed that their antidrug campaign will be “unrelenting,” especially against “topnotchers” in the watch lists.

On April 1 the 44-year-old Jocelyn Adoc — No. 8 in the Aklan police drug watch list — was arrested in her house in Barangay Andagao.

Officers found six plastic packs of suspected shabu, weighing around 60 grams and with an estimated street value of P540,000, in her bag and at least 24 pieces of jewelry and more than P300,000 in cash in her safety vault.

Both suspects have not surrendered as part of the knock-and-appeal stage of Oplan Double Barrel, Sta. Ana said.

Adoc was charged with violation of section 6 (maintenance of a den) and 11 (possession) of the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002.

Sta. Ana said they were waiting for a court order where to detain Adoc./PN
