Part of the chocolate was cut off and the portion was placed with shabu covered with aluminum foil and wrapped in a paper.

It was intended for Dennis Britaña who was detained at the police jail for violation of Republic Act 9165.

Alert police guard became apprehensive when they noticed a lighter that accompanied the chocolate.

When they opened the chocolate, they found the paper with shabu.

They arrested Superficial and questioned Britaña. Both, however, denied they own the prohibited drugs.

Francisco said they will file Section 5, 11 and 12 against Superficial in court.

Record shows, this is the second incident in Negros Occidental jail.

Two months ago, an unidentified tricycle driver left a plastic bag with toiletries intended for an inmate.

Jail guard checked the plastic bag and a bulging toothpaste which revealed dried marijuana cigarettes inside when examined.

Meanwhile, a resident of Bacolod City was nabbed in a buy-bust operation in a beach in Brgy. Mambulac, Silay City at noon Sunday.

Francisco identified the suspect as Wilfredo Porras Palmer, alias "Mater", 50, of Galo Street, Brgy. 22, Bacolod City.
