AN OFFICER of the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP) is in hot water for alleged drug peddling in Sara, Iloilo.

Anti-illegal drugs operatives of the Iloilo Provincial Police Office (IPPO) and Sara PNP mounted a buy-bust operation against Jail Officer 1 Kenneth Puerto and his wife Mary Tina at their house in Poblacion Ilawod, Sara Tuesday afternoon.

But the couple was not in their house during the operation and it was their house help, Cherry Anne Lasconia who handed a sachet of suspected shabu to the poseur-buyer.

S/Insp. Willy Diel, Sara police chief, said the buy-bust happened inside the sari-sari store owned by the Puerto couple.

Diel said they confirmed the alleged sale of illegal drugs through several test buys they conducted the past two weeks.

The BJMP regional office has ordered Puerto to show up and explain the operation on their house.

Jail Insp. Jobert Tulayan, BJMP operations chief, said they will also investigate Puerto’s links to the entry of illegal drugs at the BJMP district jail in Jaro, Iloilo City where he was assigned.
