BAGUIO CITY – Two alleged drug couriers were arrested by combined police operatives and anti-narcotics agents after they were found to be in possession of shabu and marijuana during a buy bust operation at San Vicente barangay late Thursday night.
Police authorities identified the arrested drug suspects as Edison Racraquin Caras, 29 and Patrick Camero Marinas 25 and both native of Bolinao, Pangasinan.

Also confiscated from the suspects were the drug buy bust money, two mobile phones and one pack cigarette containing cottons.
The suspects were immediately brought to the Baguio City Police Office (BCPO) headquarters for documentation while the inventory of the confiscated pieces of evidence were done in the presence of representatives from the justice department and the barangay.
Appropriate charges for violation of the pertinent provisions of Republic Act (RA) 9165 or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Law are now being readied for filing against the arrested suspects. By Dexter A. See
