BAGUIO CITY, Philippines - Two alleged “drug watch-listed” personalities were caught in a raid Thursday in Bangbangar, Bangued, Abra.

Anti-narcotics agents of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency Cordillera and Abra policemen caught Arlene Castillo Landa alias "Liberty," 43 and Jeffrey Bisares Nuñez alias "Ekong," 39, a foreman of a local electric cooperative after prohibited drugs and paraphernalia were found at their house.

Seven heat-sealed transparent plastic sachets containing shabu valued at P35,000, several drug paraphernalia, an Armscor caliber 45 pistol and a magazine containing five live ammunition were found in the duo’s lair.

PDEA-CAR said cases for violation of Section 11 (Possession of Dangerous Drugs) and Section 12 (Possession of Drug Paraphernalia), Article II of Republic Act Number 9165 otherwise known as the "Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002" will be filed against the suspects on Friday. They will also face violations of Republic Act 10591 or the "Comprehensive Firearms and Ammunition Regulation Act".
