Drug lord Peter Lim’s aide falls in Sorsogon


A drug personality with alleged links to one of the three biggest drug lords in the country was arrested by police at a beach resort in Barangay Calintaan, Matnog, Sorsogon.

A Bicol Standard report Sunday, September 18 bared that suspect Reynaldo Diaz, alias “James Tan”, was nabbed at Subic Saday Beach Resort.

Diaz was described as a close associate of Peter “Jaguar” Lim–one of the “big three” drug lords in the Philippines.

The suspect is included in the Philippine National Police’s (PNP) national-level drug watchlist. His arrest took place a couple of days after PNP Director General Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa visited Bicol’s police regional headquarters.

Senior Supt. Ronaldo Cabral, acting provincial director, said that police operatives swooped down at the resort after receiving a tip about the presence of a group of armed men.

The law enforcers ultimately nabbed seven men, one of whom was Diaz. Diaz tried to runaway away but was collared.

Recovered from them were four M16 rifles, two caliber 45 Colt, two caliber 45 Taurus, two caliber 45, 14 pieces magazine for M16 rifle (12 long and 2 short), 14 pieces magazine for caliber 45 (9 with 8 rounds and 5 with 12 rounds), 351 pcs ammunition for M16 rifle, and 117 pieces of ammunition for caliber 45.

Diaz has standing warrants of arrest for frustrated murder and violation of the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act.
