Four of the seven tablets seized from Eric John Borja during a buy-bust operation inside a hotel room in Tagbilaran City were confirmed dangerous drugs, the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) Forensic Chemistry Section in Cebu City said.
Two pieces of pink tablets and a broken pink tablet were positive of brolamfetamine (DOB), a dangerous drugs identified under RA 9165.
Two pieces of broken blue tablets were positive of
3,4-Methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDM), commonly known as ecstasy.
While two broken white tablets yielded negative results for dangerous drugs.
According to NBI-Bohol director Rennan Augustus Oliva, both DOB and MDM are relatively psychedelic substances.
However, he said that DOB, an uncommon synthetic, is more potent.
“Very dangerous to the health,” he said.
Borja, the son of Tagbilaran City administrator Edi Borja, was arrested on Saturday night, Aug. 10, for allegedly selling suspected ecstasy tablets inside a room in a hotel in Tagbilaran.
He will face charges for selling the said prohibited drugs.
