Former actress Deborah Sun, her daughter, and two cohorts were arrested in a drug buy-bust operation in Quezon City early Sunday.
Police arrested Jean Louise Salvador, also known as Deborah Sun, 60; her daughter Angela Salvador, 45; and Gonzalo Gonzales, 49; inside the condominium unit of Gerald de Guzman, 53, a Grab driver, in Barangay E. Rodriguez around 1:30 a.m. Sunday. Due Guzman was likewise arrested.
Police Lt. Col. Jeffrey Bilaro, Quezon City Police Station 8 chief, said the buy-bust operation stemmed from a drug sting against De Guzman after lawmen received reports of his illegal drug activity in his condominium unit.
After verifying the report, an undercover police officer transacted with De Guzman inside his unit that led to his arrest.
The former actress and her daughter were allegedly caught in a shabu pot session and were subsequently arrested. Gonzales, who is allegedly involved in illegal drug peddling, was also arrested.
Authorities seized from the group seven sachets of suspected shabu with an estimated street value of P6,800, some drug paraphernalia, and the buy-bust money.
The suspects are now under police custody and will face charges for violation of Republic Act 9165 or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002.
