He is presently assigned to 36th Infantry Battalion in Surigao City.
Two sachets of suspected methamphetamine hydrochloride or commonly known as shabu and an army identification card were confiscated by the authorities from the suspect.
A certain drug personality alias “Tata” was supposed to be the target of the operation but he managed to escape after the supposed buyer successfully acquired a sachet of suspected shabu.
If Bacarro is confirmed to be a member of the Army, he will be considered as a High-Value Target (HVT).
