CEBU CITY - An alleged cohort of suspected drug lord Jeffrey "Jaguar" was arrested while nearly P6 million in shabu was seized from an alleged pusher in separate police operations here late Monday, authorities said.

Oliver Martinez, who allegedly worked for the late Diaz, was caught with suspected shabu worth P500,000 in Sitio Plastican, Barangay Duljo Fatima.

Some P5.9 million worth of suspected shabu was seized from Edwin Rivera, a former janitor of a news daily, in a separate entrapment in Barangay San Nicolas.

Five packs of illegal drugs weighing about half a kilo were recovered from Rivera, who had been under surveillance for two weeks.
