Three drug traffickers yielded on Tuesday some P200,000 worth of shabu in an entrapment in Bataan.
Bataan police acting director Col. Romell Velasco said joint elements of the PPDEU, PIU and DEU personnel of Orani police conducted the buy-bust in Bgy. Pantalan Luma, Orani, resulting in the arrest of John Alipio alias Daddy, 51, single, of Bgy. Pantalan Luma, Orani and a native of Pampanga; Ervin Infante, 43; and Vhergil Infante, 23, both of Bgy.

Confiscated from the three suspects were 17 transparent plastic sachets containing shabu and the marked money.
They are now detained at the Orani jail and will be charged with violation of R.A. 9165.
Velasco vowed to step up anti-crime and drug operations in the province.
