Street-level individual busted in Surigao City during drug buy-bust operation

BUTUAN CITY -- The operatives of Surigao City Police Station Drug Enforcement Unit (SCPS-DEU) on Tuesday (January 17) successfully arrested a newly identified drug personality and a street-level individual in a buy-bust operation in Surigao City.

Ricky Manatad Ravelo, a resident of Barangay Sabang in the said city, was apprehended by local authorities during its operation at Purok 2, Barangay Sabang, where one plastic sachet of suspected crystal meth, locally known as “shabu” with an estimated weight of more or less 0.2 grams was confiscated from the 40-year-old suspect, along with a P1000-peso bill as marked money.

The confiscated shabu is estimated at P1,360 in standard drug price value.

"The Surigao del Norte Police Force will continue to defend the innocent from being victimized and exploited by the serious effects of illicit narcotics,” said Surigao del Norte Police Provincial Office (SDNPPO) Officer-in-Charge Laudemer M. Laude.

Ravelo will be facing charges for violating Republic Act No. 9165 or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002.
