Authorities arrested an elderly couple allegedly selling illegal drugs in Barangay Antonio, Parañaque City this week.
The couple was identified as Rodolfo Angeles, 61, and his wife Theresa, 62, who were caught in a buy-bust operation, ABS-CBN News reports.
Also arrested was 51-year-old John Crisologo, who allegedly bought drugs from the two suspects.
The arrest stemmed from the complaint of homeowners of the Valley 8 Subdivision, who reported their suspicions of the couple’s illicit activities in their area.
Authorities seized five sachets of suspected shabu from them with an estimated street value of P35,000.
The couple admitted they were drug users but denied selling the illegal substance. Rodolfo also said the sachet seized from them was planted.
They are facing charges in relation to Republic Act 9165 or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002.
