Marine officer Marcelino implicated in PHP380M drug-bust now in AFP custody

MANILA, Jan. 3 (PNA) -- Lt. Col. Ferdinand Marcelino, the Marine officer earlier implicated in a PHP380 million drug-bust in Sta. Cruz, Manila last year, has voluntarily surrendered to the Office of the Provost Marshal of the Armed Forces of the Philippines on Tuesday noon.

This was disclosed by AFP public affairs office chief Col. Edgard Arevalo.

He said Marcelino, accompanied by his sister, voluntarily surrendered to the military.

"We are currently processing all the necessary requirements like fingerprinting, mugshots at physical examination, and then we are filing a petition for custody at the courts so that the AFP will have custody on him," Arevalo said in Filipino.

This means that the military will have Marcelino in its safekeeping while the custody process in ongoing, he added.

"He (Marcelino) is going to be detained at the AFP Custodial Center, he will be detained definetely because he has a standing warrant of arrest, that's why he voluntarily surrendered," Arevalo stressed.

The Manila Regional Trial Court Branch 49 issued an arrest warrant against Marcelino and Chinese co-accused Yan Yi Shou last Dec. 22 after turning down their motion to dismiss the drug charges against them.

The two men were nabbed by anti-narcotics operatives last Jan. 21, 2016 in an abandoned shabu laboratory at the Celadon Residences in Sta. Cruz, Manila where authorities seized 76,697.7 grams of shabu worth over PHP380 million. (PNA)
