A local drug group member was arrested by combined agents of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) and local police after he sold methamphetamine hydrochloride, or shabu, to a poseur-buyer in Pangasinan.
PDEA Director General Undersecretary Arturo G. Cacdac, Jr. identified the suspect as Henry Subido, with aliases Marcus and Macoy, 52 years old, a resident of Sitio Casubiduan, Barangay Bugayong, Binalonan,Pangasinan.
Subido is a member of Trese Drug Group operating in Pangasinan.
On July 14, 2015 at around 3:30 in the afternoon, an undercover agent of PDEA Regional Office 1 (PDEA RO1) under Director Adrian Alvariño entered into a transaction with Subido for the purchase of one plastic sachet containing shabu. They agreed to meet in Subido’s own turf in Barangay Bugayong.
Upon the pre-arranged signal, elements of PDEA RO1, in collaboration with teams from the PNP Provincial Anti-Illegal Drugs Special Operations Task Group (PAIDSOTG), Binalonan Police Station and Pozorrubio Police Station immediately arrested Subido who yielded the buy-bust money.
Subido will be charged for violation of Section 5 (Sale of Dangerous Drugs), Article II of Republic Act 9165, or the
