ICYMI: Former PBA Player Dorian Peña Nabbed in Drug Buy-Bust Operation

Ex-PBA player Dorian Alan Peña was arrested in an anti-illegal drug raid on Wednesday in Merryland Village, Mandaluyong City.

The 39 year-old Peña faces charges for violations of Republic Act (RA) No. 9165, specifically for using forbidden  drugs and visiting a drug den.

According to multiple reports, two alleged sachets of methamphetamine hydrochloride (“shabu”) and several drug paraphernalia were found in his possession along with two more people, Ledy Mea Vilchez and Jose Paolo Ampeso.

The hefty 6’6 big man entered PBA in 2001, having spent his career as part of the San Miguel Beermen. He then last played for the GlobalPort Batang Pier in 2016.

Peña was a two-time PBA Mythical Team member and also played for Barako Bull and Barangay Ginebra.
