DAVAO CITY - Two college students were arrested after authorities recovered three sachets of shabu from their possession Thursday at Times Beach, Matina Aplaya here.

Authorities apprehended Alexis Joshua Garcia, 21, and Belle Paulina Sagala, 20, during a buy-bust operation.

Four other students are meanwhile under investigation after they were caught hanging out with the suspects inside a karaoke bar, said Chief Inspector Emerson Pugong, deputy station commander of the San Pedro police station.

The suspects admitted that they conducted illegal drug transactions inside inns or bars, sourcing the illicit items from Cotabato City, Pugong said.

Garcia and Sagala will face charges for violating the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002.
