Radio DJ Karen Bordador arrested in drug buy-bust operation
Is it a case of mistaken identity?
(SPOT.ph) Not even a popular disc jockey was spared in the Philippine National Police's crackdown on illegal drugs. On Saturday afternoon, August 13, Karen Bordador of the FM station Monster Radio 93.1 and her reported boyfriend Emilio Lim were arrested in a drug buy-bust operation in a condominium unit in Barangay Oranbo in Pasig City, according to a report on the Philippine Daily Inquirer.
In an operations report relayed by the Southern Police District to the Eastern Police District, the two were found in possession of P100,000 marked money, as well as plastic sachets with suspected marijuana leaves, marijuana resin, and Ecstacy tablets with an estimated value of around P2.5 million.
Senior Superintendent Tomas Apolinario told 24 Oras that Lim is allegedly a big supplier of party drugs in clubs in Makati and Bonifacio Global City. In the same report, Bordador can be heard saying in the background: "Wala po akong ginagawa...bumisita lang ako."
People immediately turned to her Facebook page for their reactions on what happened, with shout outs ranging from supporting the radio DJ to expressing regrets about the personality's actions.
