Operatives of the Manila Police District (MPD) arrested during a buy-bust operation on Tuesday two suspected drug traffickers for allegedly selling P5-million worth of high-grade cocaine.
Manila Mayor Alfredo S. Lim and Supt. Ernesto Tendero, chief of the Manila Police District (MPD)-Station 2, identified the suspects as Jolly Sorinao, 36, married, of 16 Casoy , Zone 1 Signal Village, Taguig City and Leslie Nab Reyes, 27, bachelor, of Barangay Sta. Austina, Dasmarinas Cavite.
Tendero said the suspects were arrested at 9 a.m. in front of the Tutuban Mall on C.M. Recto Ave., Tondo, Manila.
Prior to the incident, an asset informed Tendero about a man who was looking for buyers of cocaine.
A buy-bust operation was planned and the asset managed to close a deal with the man who turned out to be with Reyes for the sale of cocaine.
