DAVAO CITY – Authorities here seized P1-million worth of shabu and arrested three suspects during two drug operations on Friday at a remote village in Governor Generoso town in Davao Oriental.

Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) 11 chief Sr. Supt. Albert Ignatius Ferro identified the suspects as couple Sabdani and Inseh Ruana Jalali and Ledener Siraji, both of Purok 2, Barangay Tagabebe, Gov. Generoso.

Ferro told reporters during a press briefing Tuesday morning at their office that the operations were by virtue of two search warrants issued by Judge Emilio Dayanghirang of the Regional Trial Court Branch 32 based in Lupon, Davao Oriental against the suspects.

He said that the first to fall were the Jalalis when their house was raided at 6 a.m. Friday by combined elements of CIDG, Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency 11, Davao Oriental Provincial Police Office and Gov. Generoso Municipal Police Office.

Recovered were 14 big sachets of shabu weighing 86 grams and assorted drug paraphernalia, a .45 caliber pistol with 79 live ammunitions.

In another raid, Siraji was also nabbed and yielded 23 sachets of shabu weighing 8.2 grams, assorted paraphernalia and a .9mm caliber pistol with eight live ammunitions.

Ferro said the total street value of the seized illegal drugs could reach to P1-million and it was very timely that they received an information of the illegal activities of the suspects.

“We conducted three weeks of surveillance and monitoring operation and we produced a positive result. These drugs could have to be distributed in areas of Davao Oriental, Compostela Valley and Davao del Norte, including Island Garden City of Samal and we could not discount the possibility that it could land in Davao City also,” he said.

For his part, PDEA 11 director Emerson Rosales said that the source of the illegal drugs was Cotabato City and transported by sea.

Rosales said that the group of Sabdani Jalali was listed as the Number 7 Most Wanted Drug Groups in the region.

He said they are still conducting drug operations against other drug syndicates and in due time they can also catch up with them. (ASA)
