Recovered by authorities inside the house located at Magdalena Homes Subdivision were about 70 pots of Kush plants, a report from PDEA said.

Also arrested during the raid were the alleged owners of the ‘farm’ who were identified as Simon Stuart Mclaren Watson, a 42-year-old British national, and his live-in Filipina partner Rizza Fernandez, 28, PDEA said.


The Watson and Fernandez are now in custody of the PDEA as charges are being prepared against them. /muf
