MANILA, Philippines - Four alleged members of a drug ring were arrested in a sting in Quezon City Thursday night.

Asnawi Mauna, 21; Jamail Ali, 50; Hanim Yusof, 18, and Ali Saibin, 19, were nabbed in Barangay Culiat at around 9 p.m., Chief Inspector Enrico Figueroa, head of the Quezon City Police District anti-illegal drugs unit, said.

Figueroa said four police teams were dispatched to capture the group’s alleged leader, Joselito Briones, who eluded arrest.

Police recovered from the suspects six packets of shabu with an estimated market value of P60,000, a .38-caliber revolver and P1,500 in marked money.

Charges of violation of Republic Act 9165 or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002 were filed against the suspects who are being held at the QCPD detention center.
