An Australian national was arrested when dried marijuana leaves were found in his possession while he visited two female friends detained at the police precinct of Argao town, southern Cebu last Saturday night. Police said crushed dried marijuana leaves wrapped with tinfoil was recovered from Gary Frank Brough. Police said Brough went to the Argao police precinct around 9 p.m. to visit two female friends who were detained on theft charges.
Brough was denied access to the inmates since the visiting hours were from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Police said Brough insisted on entering. PO1 Renato Nacaytuna, desk officer on duty at that time, noticed something bulging in the Australian’s pocket. Brough was told to present the object in his pocket as part of the inspection.
Nacaytuna arrested the foreigner when it was found out that he carried marijuana. Police said the Australian admitted that he bought the marijuana for P3,000. Charges of possession of illegal drugs will be filed against the Australian today, said police. Police said Brough is married to a Cebuana and has been living in barangay Langtad, Argao for the past three years. Police said Brough was arrested last week when an eatery owner complained that he did not pay for the food he ordered.
