‘Lolo pusher’ arrested in Mercedes, Camarines Norte


The no.7 most wanted drug suspect in the town of Mercedes, Camarines Norte has fallen in the hands of anti-narcotics operatives.

However, his ranking in the drug watchlist is not the most shocking thing about suspect Jaime Villamor Tayo, alias “Jimbo”.

It turns out that the drug peddler is already a senior citizen at 61 years old. Tayo, a widower, resides at Purok 3, Barangay 7, Mercedes, Camarines Norte.

Members of the Camarines Norte Investigation Detection Group (CIDG), Regional Anti-Illegal Drugs Special Operation Task Group 5 (RAIDSOTG), Mercedes Municipal Police Station, and Camarines Norte Provincial Intelligence Branch (CNPIB) jointly carried out a buy-bust operation in Mercedes in the morning of September 21.

It was during the buy-bust that Tayo was nabbed. He yielded eight small sachets of shabu.

Tayo later told cops that he’s also a fisherman.

Violations of Section 5 and 11 of Article II, Republic Act no.9165 (Comprehensive Dangerous Drug Act of 2002) were filed against the elderly pusher.
