The suspect was identified as Pablito Furton, 36, a resident of Barangay 10, Cabadbaran City in Agusan del Norte.

Authorities confiscated six sachets of suspected shabu.
Concerned citizens tipped off the police on the illegal activities of Fortun, who is one of the few remaining pushers of shabu in the city, police said.
The suspect is still under investigation to determine the source of his illegal merchandise. /CLC
