DAGUPAN CITY – Some P340,000 worth of suspected shabu was confiscated from four suspects, two of them allegedly former convicted illegal drug traders, during a sting operation outside a mall at Barangay Mayombo here on June 3.
    Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) Pangasinan director Retchie Camacho identified the suspects as Roberto Maramba, Gilbert Fernandez, Eduardo Soriano, and Malaya Ganzon.
    “Based on our initial information, Maramba was released on parole from the New Bililib Prison in Muntinlupa City as well as Soriano. They were convicted of illegal drug transactions but we are still gathering more information on this,” he said in a statement.
    Maramba was the real target of the buy-bust but Fernandez was with him during the operation.
    Soriano and Ganzon delivered the suspected shabu, weighing about 50 grams, to where Maramba and Fernandez were waing, leading to the quartet’s arrest by PDEA agents who posed as buyers.
    “They are high-value targets given the amount of illegal drugs they dealt,” he said.
    Camacho said the suspects are under PDEA custody while cases are being readied for filing. -- PNA
