Chief Insp. Jovie Espenido, Albuera Chief of Police, said the mayor was brought to the provincial jail at 10:50am after undergoing physical and medical examination at the Western Leyte Provincial Hospital.
Based on report, Espinosa did not resist when the warrant of arrest was served inside the police station at 8:30am.
The case rooted from the 11.4 kilos of illegal drugs found in his home and the illegal possession of firearms during the raid conducted at his house last August 2016.
