A man was arrested by the police after being caught in the act of using illegal drugs while he was checked in at a hotel in Barangay Bangkal, Makati City on Friday, Oct. 21.
The suspect was identified as Antonio Chua, 36, and a resident of Pasay City.
According to the police report, the supervisor of the hotel where Chua was staying went to the Bangkal Police Sub-Station to report the suspect engaging in an alleged pot session in his hotel room. The station then dispatched its officers to verify the supervisor’s report where they caught Chua holding a glass tooter with traces of suspected shabu and one plastic sachet.
Upon verification, the police confirmed that Chua was indeed using shabu and that the items they saw on top of his bed are drug paraphernalia.
During the inspection of the suspect’s room, the operatives also recovered an additional four sachets of shabu, two improvised water pipes, one glass tube, and one lighter.
The recovered pieces of evidence have a total estimated weight of 6.4 grams and a drug street value of P43,520.00 which were turned over to the Southern Police District (SPD) Forensic Unit for qualitative and quantitative analysis.
Complaints for Violation of Art. II Sections 11 and 12 of RA 9165 (Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act) will be filed against Chua.
“We are very thankful for the cooperation of the public, aiding us in the fulfillment of our mission. We shall continue the fight against illegal drugs and make sure to create a safer Southern Metro Manila,” SPD Director Police Brig. Gen. Kirby John Brion Kraft said.
