Daughter looking for parents ended up selling shabu in Iligan CityPosted on
ILIGAN CITY (June 19) — A 21-year old girl from Siquijor went to Iligan City in the hope of finding her parents, but she turned out a drug dealer after meeting her boyfriend last year.
Mary Grace Manginsay, 21, told Jamal Dimaporo, chief of the National Bureau of Investigation Iligan District Office, she travelled to Iligan City from San Juan, Siquijor Province to find her parents, but she failed. Instead, met Omar Magondacan, 36, a resident of Barangay Panggao Saduc, Marawi City, and became lovers.
In an interview, Manginsay claimed Magondacan became her partner in the business, including the selling of illegal drugs which started in June this year.
She admitted, the seven big packs and one small plastic of the confiscated shabu which has an estimated market value of Php 100,000.00 belonged to them.
The two were arrested inside a room of a lodging house in Purok 7, Barangay Tambacan.
Dimaporo said they have been following the two for almost three months now.
“We have been following them but we cannot get a perfect timing because they keep on transferring room,” Dimaporo said.
Aside from the ‘shabu’, operatives have also confiscated drug paraphelnalia including resealable plastics used in repacking of the drugs.-Divina M. Suson/NewsLine.ph
