POZORRUBIO—The town’s most notorious suspected illegal drug peddler was finally arrested Tuesday by the local police and elements of Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency Region 1 and seized from him sachets of shabu, gun and ammunition.
Police chief Insp. Ryan Manongdo said Marlon Estaris, 39, married, painter and a resident of Barangay Palguyod, was nabbed based on arrest and search warrants served to him in his residence.
