Retchie Camacho, PDEA Pangasinan Team Leader said Brian Santiago, Maria Rowena Cariño, Jonathan Castro, Eduardo Dasig, and maintainer Nestor Felizardo, were arrested in a drug den situated on a rooftop.

Felizardo was the main subject of the operation and the four were found inside the den, a one-stop shop for illegal drugs. Dasig was his assistant.

Camacho said Felizardo’s operations were under surveillance since last year to assess his network.

The team backed by elements from the Dagupan City police, seized four transparent plastic sachet of suspected shabu that weighed 12 grams in all, assorted drug paraphernalia, two cellphones, two motorcycles, and cash on the table inside the drug den.

Camacho said that Felizardo was getting his supplies from his network in Bulacan.

The suspects are charged for violation of Sections 5, 11, and 12 of Republic Act 9165 or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002. (Ahikam Pasion)
