This came as the police here arrested a “well known” drug pusher from Olongapo City who allegedly supply drugs in Concepcion, Tarlac.

In his report to Tarlac police provincial director PSSupt Ritchie Posadas, Superintendent Luis Ventura Jr, revealed that Arnolf Lugtu, AKA “Ponpon”, 30, of Sitio Pao, Barangay Sta. Cruz, here, was nabbed in a buy bust on May 27 morning time.

Lugtu’s name is listed on this town’s Watchlist of drug personalities and earlier he was among those who “surrendered” to the police but, apparently, he (Lugtu) continued his drug operation.

“Lugtu fooled us (police). He surrendered (to the police) and admitted his illegal drug activities and even signed an affidavit promising that he will no longer involve himself on illegal drugs. But he reneged on his promise and continued his selling shabu“, said Ventura.

Lugtu is a native of Olongapo City, but established a “palay buying” and “cono” (palay mill) business in Barangay Sta. Cruz 3 years ago.

His neighbors suspect that his business is only a “front” for his drug dealings.

“Nakaka-duda ang pagnegosyo niya (Lugtu) dito sa amin. Nagtayo siya ng konohan (palay mill) pero madalas namang sarado at ang pagbili niya ng palay paminsan-minsan lang. Laging siyang nagpupunta sa Olongapo (city) at alam ng halos lahat dito na siya ang nagbibigay at nagbebenta ng shabu dito sa amin”, said a neighbor who requested his name withheld for security reasons.

Lugtu is also described as, “bigtime, laging maraming pera pero hindi naman ina-asikaso ang negosyo (palay buying and milling)”

For his part, Mayor Andy Lacson commended Ventura for his “very serious and relentless efforts against illegal drugs”.

“Walang shabu laboratory dito, kaya dapat talagang hulihin ang mga nagdadala ng droga sa aming bayan”, also said Lacson.

CAPTION: Peddler of shabu from Olongapo City? Arnolf Lugtu “a well known pusher” from Olongapo City was arrested in buy bust at his residence at Barangay Sta. Cruz, Concepcion, Tarlac. Lugtu is now detained at the Concepcion Police Station.
