Big-Time Pusher Nabbed in Buy-Bust

A big time drug pusher of Sagay City in northern Negros Occidental was arrested in a drug bust at Himogaan Baybay, a seashore barangay of Sagay City Monday.

Police Inspector Adrian James Albaytar, Sagay City Deputy Police Chief identified the suspect as Paul Montaño, of legal age, resident of the said place.

Montaño was confiscated with two plastic sachets of suspected shabu in exchange for P300 marked money; P8,050 cash proceeds and other drug paraphernalia.

Also recovered were bank withdrawal and deposit slips which

show that Montaño is a big time drug pusher.

Albaytar said huge deposit and withdrawal transactions were found in the bank slips they recovered. The latest transaction made by the suspect was this month wherein P80, 000 was withdrawn.

The suspect told police that the transaction was payment for his fighting cocks. But Albaytar said he has only about 10 to 15 fighting cocks in his backyard.

The suspect was arrested while tending their small store which police operatives said is a front in disposing illegal drugs.

The suspect is detained at Sagay City PNP facing charges in violation of RA 9165.*
