Antidrug policemen arrested four suspects and seized P350,000 in ecstasy tablets and cocaine in a buy-bust operation in Quezon City late Saturday night, the Manila Police District (MPD) said Sunday.

According to the MPD, members of its Ermita Police Drug Enforcement Unit conducted the buy-bust at 11:30 pm in front of a convenience store along Katipunan Avenue in Loyola Heights after coordinating with the QC Police District Station 9.


The MPD identified those arrested as Daniel Concepcion, Richard Martinez, Michael Villasanta, and Rakesh Bhogwan.

Recovered from the four men were 153 tablets of the “party drug” ecstasy, 2 sachets of suspected cocaine all worth about P350,000, and the buy-bust money, police said.


Following the operation, the lawmen also seized three cars: a Nissan Patrol, a Subaru WRX and a Toyota Vios.

All pieces of evidence from the drug sting have been turned over to the crime laboratory for testing.

The suspects face charges before the QC Prosecutors Office for violating Republic Act 9165 or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002. /cbb
