Police Supt. Ariel Philip Pontillas identified the suspected drug pusher as a certain Glenn Gurro Sagrado, 53, married, and a residence of Purok 3, Barangay 18-A, this city.
Sagrado was caught by the police in a buy bust being conducted at his stall inside the market premises said Pontillas.
Recovered from Sagrado’s possession were P500 bill as a buy-bust money to buy one sachet and another sachet of shabu found in his left side pocket.
Sagrado denied selling drugs saying: “Wala ko mamaligya, tinarong akong negosyo.”
Pontillas said Sagrado owns a stall inside the public market selling face towels, baby oils, baby powders, lighters, and other assorted items.
But later, Sagrado confessed to using shabu but not to selling drugs.
