An incumbent Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) councilor was arrested in a buy-bust operation Wednesday afternoon in Cabadbaran City in Agusan del Norte province.
Harley Keith Ofamin, 21, councilor at Barangay Rosario in Magallanes town, was arrested by members of the Cabadbaran City police and Provincial Intelligence Branch of Agusan del Norte Provincial Police Office around 12:45 p.m during a buy-bust operation, a police report said.
Brig. Gen. Gilberto DC Cruz, Caraga regional police director, said the arrest came after an undercover agent successfully bought several sachets of suspected “shabu” (crystal meth) from the suspect.
Ofamin, who is considered by police a “high-value target”, yielded some 17 grams of shabu worth P200,6000.
The suspect was brought to the Cabadbaran Police Station along with the gathered evidence for booking procedures.
Ofamin is facing criminal charges for violations of Republic Act No. 9165 or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act. By CLC
