QC drug pushers nabbed with P800K worth of ‘shabu’

/ 05:02 AM April 16, 2018

The Quezon City Police District (QCPD) on Saturday seized over P800,000 worth of “shabu” (crystal meth) from two notorious drug pushers during a buy-bust operation at Barangay Pasong Tamo.

QCPD District Drug Enforcement Unit head, Chief Insp. Ferdinand Mendoza, said 160 grams of shabu with a street value of P800,000 were confiscated from Russel Ferraro alias Abon and Gary Baking, whose elaborate modus operandi had allowed them to avoid detection.

According to Mendoza, Ferraro chose his retailers and customers and made sure his couriers made deliveries only to parts of Quezon City that were far from where they lived to avoid being exposed.

Ferraro, 48, and Baking, 38, were arrested after an undercover policeman bought P13,000 worth of shabu from them at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday.

A buy-bust operation earlier at Barangay Vasra, also on Saturday, gave the police the information they needed to conduct the Pasong Tamo operation.

Earlier, they arrested Romeo Lagdamen, 50, from whom five sachets of shabu were confiscated.

The suspects will be charged with violating Republic Act No. 9165 or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act. —Matthew Reysio-Cruz
