3 construction workers held for illegal drugs in Nueva Ecija

TALAVERA, Nueva Ecija — Three construction workers were arrested in a drug buy-bust operation in Barangay La Torre here on Wednesday.
Lt. Col. Alexie Desamito, Talavera police chief, identified the suspects as siblings Alvin Mangunay, 45, and Roberto, 37; and Roberto Gonzales, 34, all of Barangay Poblacion Sur, this municipality.
Recovered from the three were 16 sachets of suspected shabu and the PHP1,000 buy-bust money.
