TACLOBAN CITY- A barangay chairman in Guiuan town, Eastern Samar was recently arrested by government operatives in a buy-bust operation. Nabbed was Nestor Cunanan, 49 and married, at his house in Barangay 3 of the said town, Liza Baoy, information officer of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) said. “Being an elected official, he is considered to be a high value target. Of course, he denied the allegations against him as he claimed that the shabu seized from his possession was just planted,” Baoy said. Seized from the suspect was a sachet of shabu (hydrochloride methamphetamine) weighing 0.1453 gram. Cunanan is now detained at the Guiuan municipal police station as charges for violation of anti-drug law or Republic Act 9165 were filed against him. (JAG)
