DAVAO – Two men were arrested in two separate buy bust operations conducted by members of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency in Davao on Friday evening.

PDEA-XI first arrested 39-year old tricycle driver Marlon Ecunas Bael in Barangay Sto. Niño.

Bael surrendered to the Panabo Police last July 2015 but continued to sell illegal drugs.

Recovered from his possession were three sachets of alleged shabu with street value amounting to P10,000.

Meanwhile, 39-year old Jeovanni Oca was also arrested on the same evening by PDEA-XI at Carnation Street, Buhangin, Davao city.

Oca sells shabu in his own sari-sari store, PDEA XI told.

Seized from him were five sachets of alleged shabu worth P14,000 and drug paraphernalia.

Both will face charges against Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002.
