COTABATO CITY, Philippines — Authorities arrested in separate operations Monday two wanted drug traffickers who have allegedly been selling shabu in volume through distributors in General Santos City and in Sarangani province.

The first to fall was Benhar Nahasuan, who was cornered by personnel of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency-12 and Regional Police Office-12 in Barangay Sapi Masla in Malapatan, Sarangani.

Another alleged drug dealer, Rodolfo Algarme, was nabbed several hours later in Glan town in the same province.

Both had warrants for their arrest.

Naravy Duquiatan, director of PDEA-12, said Tuesday the duo were engaged in large-scale peddling of shabu in Sarangani and in nearby barangays in General Santos City.

Duquiatan said Nahasuan and Algarme will be prosecuted for violation of the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act.
