POLICE anti-illegal drug operatives have arrested the suspect who robbed a woman inside a Macanhan-liner multicab in a drug buy-bust operation Monday night, August 1.
Authorities identified the suspect as Raymund Aguilar, 31, resident of Tambo, Carmen, this city, and a former employee of the City Social Welfare Department (CSWD).
Police Major Mario Mantala, chief of Police Station 4, led the operation where he ordered the team to wear a body camera.
Mantala said the suspect sustained minor bruises after the operatives were compelled to apply reasonable force when the suspect showed resistance during the arrest.
Seized from the suspect were suspected shabu (Methamphetamine hydrochloride) worth more than P54,000, drug paraphernalia, two bladed weapons and a 38 caliber revolver.
He added that the suspect was the man behind the robbery incident inside a multicab at Ysalina Bridge in Barangay Carmen last week.
"The robbery incident is considered as cleared,"he said.
The suspect is now detained and will face robbery and drug charges.
