PDEA nabs party drug supply suspects in Angeles City bust
Agents of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) in Central Luzon seized P1 million worth of illegal drugs and arrested eight suspects in an operation in Angeles City.
Gil Pabilona, PDEA regional director, said the suspects were among the major suppliers of party drugs and Valium, a prescription downer.
Arrested were Bernice Fabiosa, 21, Ma. Isabel Lawas, 19; Aileen Baldon, 23; Jamie Mendoza, 20, Jessa Scott, 19; Bernadeth Saavedra, 19; Sean Moreno, 42; and Gregorio Imperial, 26, all residents of Angeles City.
Pabilona said Fabiosa sold Dimethyl Tripticase, a party drug classified as hallucinogen, worth P200,000 to an undercover agent in front of a hotel that led to the arrests.
Seized from the suspects were 310 tablets of party drugs (ecstasy), five capsules of Dimethyl Tripticase, a plastic bottle containing 100 Valium tablets, three plastic sachets containing suspected kush (a more potent cannabis variety), a plastic sachet containing about 0.75 grams of cocaine and a weighing scale.
