GMA News obtained a cellphone video showing Ozamiz City Vice Mayor Nova Princess Parojinog-Echavez trying to hide something in her hands during the raid conducted Sunday at the Parojinog’s residence.
On Monday, video of News To Go showed the vice mayor reaching for her bag while the police were conducting an inspection in her room.
She held the item in her hand and was even caught putting something in her mouth.
Police officers struggled hard to pry open her hands to get the item. A packet with something white inside was seen in her hand.
After that, the cops immediately handcuffed her.
