MANILA - An elderly woman and 11 others were arrested Saturday night when police raided an alleged drug den in Barangay Carreta, Cebu City.

The Mabolo Police Station said 68-year-old Bening Coliflores, who allegedly sells illegal drugs inside her home in Sitio Panaghius, was the target of their search operation.

Recovered from Coliflores' home were P12,000 in drug money, several small sachets of suspected shabu and various drug paraphernalia.

Although Coliflores has denied that she sells narcotics, she has admitted to renting out her house as a drug den.

Seven people were caught amid a pot session in her home. They were identified as Hernan Tañeza, Janel caspi, Roland Mondejar, Henry Herciso, Manuel Lipon, Michael Vinzon and Cesar Coliflores, a nephew of the target.

Also arrested were Coliflores' alleged runners Rogelio Vargas, Isias Alfiz, Kevin Tañeza and Mary Ann Paculaba.
