TAGBILARAN CITY – The Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) yesterday said that Razilyn Rosalinda Onez Tecson, a suspected drug pusher in Dauis town who was nabbed last week, is still behind bars at Camp Dagohoy, agent Ma. Chona Egam said in her text last night. Egam also added that the suspect has yet post bail for her temporary liberty.
Egam bared that cases against Tecson were filed yesterday. Tecson is charged for violation of sections 11 and 12 of Republic Act No. 9165, known as the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act. Barangay chairperson Violeta Guimbalina of barangay Bingag, Dauis town, confirmed to radio program that she is aware of the presence of suspect who is noted to be a drug pusher, anchorman Alan Mangmang said in interview.
Meanwhile, it will be recalled that the question whether the suspect (Razilyn Rosalinda Onez Tecson) tried to seek help from government officials or not when she was arrested on illegal drugs still uncertain. PDEA and Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) operatives have raided the house of the suspect allegedly involved in illegal drugs in barangay Bingag, Dauis town.
PDEA agent Ma. Chona Egam confirmed this in interview hours after the raid. The authorities brought to Camp Dagohoy the suspect for questioning. She said that confiscated from the suspect’s possession were six packs/sachets containing crystalline substances believed to be “shabu.”
And the seized substances from the suspect was confirmed positive as “shabu” as a result of the laboratory test, PCInsp Teodoro Tadeo Santos, Jr., Bohol CIDG head, said during an interview with radio program “Sumada” over DyTR anchored by Alan Mangmang and Salvio Madanguit yesterday. Santos is said to be the leader of the said raid.
Madanguit asked the CIDG head to confirm if indeed he heard Tecson saying or even insisting to call Gov. Chatto and provincial administrator Alfonso Damalerio II during the raid, Santos said in the positive, saying even his companions who conducted the raid also heard her uttering the attempt for help.
But Santos said that probably Tecson tried to halt the raid and her arrest. He said that what they have done was to implement the warrant issued by Judge Jennifer Chavez Marcos of RTC branch 2.
He cited that even the governor told them (operatives) in one of the meetings to conduct arrests on those involved in illegal drugs. Citing that no one is sacred cows in the campaign against illegal drugs, Santos cited an instance that he even arrested a colonel who allegedly operating a laboratory for drugs in La Union where he was assigned.
