PARANG, Maguindanao  – Police and anti-narcotic operatives arrested here Monday afternoon a school principal during drug buy bust operations.

Police Lt. Colonel Ibrahim Jambiran, Parang municipal police chief, identified the suspect as Nasser Kali Tando, 54, principal of Miramar Elementary School in Barangay Poblacion 2, Parang, Maguindanao.

Jambiran said Tando, a resident of Sitio Miramar of the same village, was arrested at about 1 p.m. after he handed over suspected shabu to a poseur buyer during test buy.

Tando, considered by Parang police as high value target for his alleged drug peddling business to students in Barangay Poblacion, agreed to sell three sachets of shabu worth P3,000.

Jambiran said Tando did not resist arrest.

The operation, Jambiran said, was witnessed by Chairperson Abdulmonem Ali of Barangay Poblacion 2.

Police also seized another sachet of shabu from Tando.

Jambiran added that Tando admitted he was taking his stuff from a supplier in Cotabato City.

He is now detained at Parang custodial facility and charges for violation of Republic Act 9165 are being prepared against him.
