MISAMIS ORIENTAL - The younger brother of Herbert Colanggo, a high- profile inmate in the New Bilibid Prison, was arrested in a drug buy-bust operation in Barangay Natumulan, Tagoloan town early Thursday.
Recovered from Leoncio Colanggo, 39, were six sachets of suspected shabu with an estimated value of P3,000. Also seized from him was the P300 buy-bust money.
According to Chief Insp. Albart Tare, chief of Tagoloan Municipal Police, they have yet to check whether Leoncio was on the drug watchlist in other areas.
He added that the suspect was once a big-time drug dealer but was forced to deal drugs on the streets because of the shortage in the supply of illegal drugs.
The suspect denied selling drugs but admitted to being a user.
