CAMP GEN. SIMEON A. OLA, Legazpi City, Nov. 19 (PNA) -- An alert female Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP) member collared a tricycle driver who had brought siopao containing shabu to an inmate Wednesday afternoon at the BJMP detention center in Barangay Balogo, Sorsogon City.
A police report identified the suspect as Edgardo Garcia, 45, married and a resident of Block 2 Lot 3, BNCC Compound, Barangay Cabid-an, Sorsogon City.
The report said JO1 Michelle Mae Azucena was inspecting the siopao that Garcia had brought to prisoner Rey Lagata at about 4:20 p.m. when she discovered that the food item contained four plastic sachets with shabu embedded in it.
Azucena immediately arrested Lagata while she cited for him the Miranda Doctrine.
Lagata is now inside the police detention center while a case of violation of RA 9165 is being readied against him.(PNA) FFC/FGS/EMC/CBD/PJN
