Barangay kagawad is Masbate’s no.5 drug suspect


Whoever knew that this Masbate Barangay councilman was the no.5 drug personality in the province?

Police Regional Office (PRO)-Bicol recently arrested “high-value target” Diego Lorejas, 38, a Barangay Kagawad of Morocborocan in the town of Uson.

Also nabbed was Lorejas’s wife, Teresa, 39.

PRO operatives swooped down on the councilman’s house over the previous weekend, said a Bicol Today report Tuesday (June 6).

The cops carried a search warrant issued by Judge Teofilo Tambago of Regional Trial Court (RTC) Branch 46 in Masbate City.

Police later seized 13.713 grams of “shabu” worth P120,000 from the couple.

The report said that Lorejas was the top drug suspect in his municipality.
