CABADBARAN CITY, Agusan del Norte - A notorious illegal drug peddler was arrested by authorities during a buy-bust operation in Purok 1, Barangay Mabini Friday.

Joseph Beniga Sevilla, 27, ranked fourth on the police's drug watchlist, which was put together in July when President Rodrigo Duterte took office and urged an intensified campaign against illegal drugs.

Recovered from the suspect were drug paraphernalia, marked money, and sachets suspected to contain an estimated P4,000 worth of methamphetamine, locally known as "shabu".

Sevilla was detained at the Cabadbaran City Police Station and will be charged with the sale of illegal drugs.
