16 drug suspects arrested at Bohol nursing home
TAGBILARAN CITY, Bohol – Officers from the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) -Bohol on Saturday arrested 16 suspected drug sellers and consumers and seized 50,000 P of shabu (methamphetamine hydrochloride) during a raid on a house in retreat here.
NBI-Bohol supervisor lawyer Arcelito Albao said they were monitoring Randy Roble Rama, 26, a resident of Calape town, in his illegal drug trade.
He said Rama was a notorious drug dealer in the city who peddled drugs in rented rooms in nursing homes, hostels and hotels.
Albao said Rama was selling drugs in the city around 11 p.m. Friday.
After midnight, the suspect went to a retirement home on Calceta Street in Barangay (village) Cogon and rented room 20 where men came to buy shabu.
When the raid team knocked on his room, Rama opened the door thinking he was being visited by a buyer.
Rama was reportedly caught leading a potty session and packing up the shabu when NBI agents arrived. Fifteen other people, including a civil servant, were also arrested.
A large sachet and eight small strips of shabu valued at P 50,000 and assorted drug paraphernalia were recovered from his possession.
Albao said they were preparing a dangerous drug law violation complaint against the suspects. CDG
