Anti-illegal drugs operatives busted Teresita Escalona, 53; Princess May, 20, and Ruel, 40, both surnamed Meralles; and Wilson Barameda, 30, after they sold “shabu” (crystal meth) to an undercover police officer and an “informant” in Barangay Mayao Crossing at 2:20 a.m.


The suspects yielded nine plastic sachets of shabu weighing 26.3 with an estimated Dangerous Drugs Board value of P48,665. The confiscated illegal drugs were worth P145,965 in the street market.
