BPPO PDEU Chief Police Lt. Vic Viros identified the suspect as Dennis Magno y Madulid, a.k.a. Angga, 40, married, self- employed and a resident of the said place.
Recovered from his possession was one sachet containing white crystalline substance suspected to be shabu procured by a poseur buyer cop for P500. During body search, the cops recovered another sachet containing the same white crystalline substance suspected to be shabu also. Further search also resulted in the recovery of the P500 bill with serial number P627283, which was the marked money used for the operation.
