Comments Off on Granny, 75, still ‘pushing Methamphetamine’ in Carcar City, Cebu

A 75-YEAR-OLD grandmother landed in jail after allegedly being caught with P236,000 worth of what appeared to be shabu in Barangay Bolinawan, Carcar City, Cebu yesterday morning.

Her daughter Ethel, son-in-law Marcelo, Regino Cabaluna and Albert Greg Delantar were caught keeping watch over the elderly woman’s illegal drug supplies inside.

Less than 24 hours earlier, the authorities seized illegal drugs worth P2.5 million and arrested two men in a buy-bust in Barangay Looc, Lapu-Lapu City last Thursday night.

Secretaria had caught the attention of the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) 7 two weeks ago because of a report that peddlers of pork chicharon and ampaw, two of the town’s known delicacies, frequented her place.

Secretaria later admitted the report was true.

She said she hopped into the trade again last April, six months after her first arrest last October, so she could buy medicines for her high blood pressure, diabetes and arthritis.

“Gabasol unta ko pero unsaon ta man, wala man tay laing pangita para palit tambal (I regretted selling shabu but I could not think of other means to earn money for my medications),” she said.
