Retired cop, wife fall in drug bust

Three persons including a retired policeman and his wife were arrested while P150,000 worth of shabu were seized during a buy-bust operation in Pampanga, the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) said yesterday.

PDEA Director General Arturo Cacdac Jr. identified one of the arrested suspects as retired SPO1 Abubakar Gulam, 59, who had been assigned to the Police Security and Protection Group (PSPG) in Camp Crame, Quezon City.

Gulam was arrested along with his wife, Dina, 35, and one Vilma Isani, 64, at around 5:30 p.m. Wednesday at Dau Bus Terminal in Barangay Dau, Mabalacat City, Pampanga.

Operatives of PDEA Regional Office 3 (PDEA RO3) under Director Jeoffrey Tacio arrested the suspects after they were caught red-handed selling two sachets of methamphetamine hydrochloride, locally known as shabu, to an agent acting as buyer. (Jeffrey Damicog)
