THREE drug traffickers on Tuesday were arrested while some P200,000 worth of shabu was seized in an entrapment operation in Bataan.

Bataan police acting director Col. Romell Velasco said joint elements of the PPDEU, PIU and DEU personnel of the Orani police conducted the buy-bust in Bgy. Pantalan Luma, Orani.

Nabbed were John Alipio alias “Daddy,” 51, of  Bgy. Pantalan Luma, Orani; Ervin Infante, 43; and Vhergil Infante, 23,  both of Bgy. Wawa, Pilar.

Confiscated from the three suspects were 17 transparent plastic sachets containing shabu and the marked money.

The arrested suspects are now detained at the Orani jail and will be charged with violation of Republic Act 9165 or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002. Bernard Galang
