Philippine National Police claimed that it has obtained a list of celebrities to whom alleged drug sellers FM DJ Karen Bordador and boyfriend, Emilio Lim, supply drugs.
According to the District Anti-Illegal Drugs Division of the Southern Police District, the list includes names of actors, singers, and models that buy drugs from the two suspects. The couple also supplies drugs to children of wealthy families as well as other known personalities.
SPD-DAID chief Sr. Insp. Wilfredo Sanghel encouraged the clients in the list to surrender or they will be arrested. "Or else makakakuha kami ng lead para ma-catch up namin sila. Gumagamit sila at maaring nagbebenta rin sila (Or else if we get some lead to catch them. If they are a user, there is a chance that they are also selling)," Sanghel said.
Bordador and her boyfriend were allegedly the suppliers of party drugs of upscale clubs. The couple has maintained their innocence.
The two were arrested during a buy-bust operation at a condo unit in Pasig City on Saturday afternoon. Police operatives said that the two resisted arrest by closing the door of the condo unit when the buyer identified himself as a policeman.
The DJ insisted that she just visited her boyfriend, but police said that she helped her boyfriend in selling drugs by directing high-end clients to him.
According to reports, police found three million worth of party drugs like ecstasy, marijuana and marijuana oil. Also found are cash, counting machines, and other drug paraphernalia. The target of the arrest was Bordador’s boyfriend Emilio Lim, aka Edwardo Cruz.
The operation was conducted by the narcotics division of the Southern Police District in coordination with the Eastern Police District based from the tip fed by a Filipino-American identified as Evan Reynald Baylon. Baylon was arrested earlier after he was caught selling ecstasy at high-end bars in Bonifacio Global City in Taguig City.
Investigation is already underway and the suspects were innocent until proven guilty.
