Manila councilor Jesus Fajardo ordered the police to arrest his children Friday, May 22, over their alleged involvement in illegal drugs.

Janet and Jonathan Fajardo were arrested in a buy-bust operation in Tondo. Also arrested was Janet’s live-in partner and three others.

In a May 6 letter addressed to authorities, Fajardo said he received reports that the area near his home was being used as a drug den.

Fajardo said he was giving the police permission to raid his residence to arrest those allegedly using drugs.

The councilor’s children are currently in the custody of the Manila Police District. They will be charged with violation of the Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002.
