MANILA, Philippines (UPDATED) – Radio DJ Karen Bordador and her boyfriend Emilio Lim were arrested after a buy-bust operation in Pasig City.

According to a report on TV Patrol, approximately P3 million worth of ecstasy, marijuana, and marijuana oil were found at a condo unit in Pasig City on Saturday, August 13. Also found at the unit were drug paraphernalia, money, and a money counting machine.

Senior Superintendent Tomas Apolinario told TV Patrol, “Itong operation na ito ay bunga ng direktiba ng ating chief PNP (Philippine National Police), na sugpuin ang ilegal na droga dito sa mga high-end clubs tsaka sa mga bars.

(This operation is due to a directive from our chief PNP, that we should suppress the illegal drugs that can be found at high-end clubs and bars.)

Siya [Lim] ang itinuturo na malaking nagsusupply sa mga nagtutulak sa mga clubs sa Makati at sa BGC (He [Lim] is said to be a big supplier among those who push drugs at clubs in Makati and BGC),” added Apolinario, in a report on 24 Oras. He said that the customers in those areas range from students and teenagers to wealthy people and celebrities.

“Ito ang mga bumibili sa kanila (These are the people who are buying drugs from them),” he said on TV Patrol.

In the same 24 Oras report, Bordador can be heard saying: “Wala po akong ginagawa… bumisita lang ako.” (I wasn’t doing anything… I just visited.)

According to a report, a Filipino-American caught selling ecstasy at Bonifacio Global City told the police about Lim. – Rappler.com
