CEBU - A female visitor to the male dormitory in Cebu City Jail was arrested after police discovered painkillers hidden inside the bread she was supposed to give to her live-in partner.
Mary Ann Labita was arrested after authorities found 19 ampules of Nubain, a brand of painkiller similar to morphine, hidden inside pieces of bread she was carrying. Meanwhile, a drug personality in Barangay Tejero, Cebu City surrendered to operatives of Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) in Region 7 Sunday night.
PDEA conducted an operation against Rex Sebunit Sunday afternoon but he was able to escape. He then surrendered to PDEA later. PDEA-7 Regional Director Yogi Filemon Ruiz said they confiscated 71 grams of shabu from Sebunit, worth P170,000.
The agency has yet to identify the person supplying Sebunit with illegal drugs. Sebunit denied possessing said amount of shabu.
