The actor Cogie Domingo was arrested by the operatives of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) Region 4-A on October 27 during a buy-bust operation in BF Homes Parañaque City.
In the afternoon of the same day, PDEA brought Cogie at a press conference at Camp Vicente Lim in Calamba, Laguna, and he denied that he is using or selling illegal drugs. He also claimed that he was setup, and the illegal drugs that was confiscated from his vehicle was not his.
“Hindi po ako nagbebenta. Hindi rin po ko bumibili. Hindi ko po alam kung ano yung ebidensiya laban po sa akin. Sa totoo niyan, kumakain lamang po kami ng dinner. Nagulat na lang ako na meron pong mga pulis dun at nagkaroon ng hulihan,” the actor stated.
More recently, Cogie was allowed by PDEA to post bail for P200,000, while the other two guys who were with him can post bail for P100,000. However, the woman, who is believed to be the drug dealer, was not allowed to post bail.
