ROXAS City – Two men were jailed for trying to impede the arrest of a drug suspect in Barangay Aranguel, President Roxas, Capiz, police said.
The 24-year-old resident Peter Jun Ordas was caught after he sold shabu to an undercover officer for P1,000 on March 30, a police report showed.
But relatives Harry Ordas and Hilbert Ordas tried to block police officers from arresting Ordas. They created a commotion, police said.
That was when the officers also arrested the two, who were facing an obstruction of justice charge.
When frisked, Ordas yielded six sachets of suspected shabu. He was also detained at the municipal police station lockup facility and facing charges for violation of Republic Act 9165, or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002./PN
