Police have arrested an alleged top drug pusher in Quezon City during a buy-bust operation on Sunday.

Jennifer Hong, a Chinese-national, was arrested in Barangay Claro.

Police seized from her a half-kilo of what is believed to be shabu, whose street value is estimated at P1.2-million.

Meanwhile, a man who surrendered to the Philippine National Police's Oplan Tokhang turned out to be a cop.

PO1 Liberato Calda, who was assigned to Taguig City, turned himself to the QC Police District after his name appeared in a drug watch list.

QCPD officials said they did not know initially that Calda was a police officer.

"Kinatok doon, pero wala siya. Ang process natin ay 'pag wala siya doon, ibibilin doon sa kasamahan doon..and then inimbitahan na pumunta sa station,"said Senior Superintendent Guillermo Eleazar of the QCPD.

Calda has tested positive for drugs in an initial drug test.
