A person who claimed to be a close relative of Sagay City Mayor Narciso Javelosa, Jr., was arrested by police in a raid at Purok 9, Barangay 1 Poblacion in the city about 4:30 pm yesterday.">

Jojo Javelosa, 40, was arrested by Sagay PNP men led by Supt. Edel Jose Manzano.

Manzano said they were armed with search warrant issued by Judge Reginald Puentebella of the Municipal Trial Court in Cities, Sagay City.

Before the raid, police operatives conducted a test buy which turned positive after he handed a small sachet of suspected shabu to poseur-buyer.

Manzano said it proves that Javelosa is engaged in selling the prohibited drugs.

But Javelosa denied the accusation and claimed he was surprised with the recovered items from him.

Recovered were a sachet of suspected shabu; several ammunitions of .9mm and .45 caliber firearms; cash amount P5, 000.

Javelosa said the ammunitions were collections when they go firing with Vice Mayor.

He added that he got P5, 000 cash from the city hall. He, however, failed to give more details about the money if it was his salary.
