SURIGAO CITY - Agents of PDEA Caraga Region based in Butuan City had successfully apprehended on Monday, November 11, a big-time shabu supplier from Cebu Province during a buy-bust operation conducted at Jannex Pension House, Surigao City.

Arrested at about 10:30 p.m. was Kennth Diez Canedo, 39 years old, married and a resident of Brgy. Pakigne, Minglanila, Cebu Province, who was caught red-handed with several grams of shabu after he handed the same to a PDEA agent who acted as a poseur-buyer during the said buy-bust operation inside Room 306 and who paid him with P5,000 marked money.

Canedo was later found in possession of nine (9) packs of shabu weighing more or less 47 grams with an estimated value of more than P165,000.00 which were immediately confiscated by PDEA authorities in the presence of witnesses.
