LUCENA CITY –– Anti-illegal drugs operatives arrested two notorious “shabu” (crystal meth) peddlers in separate buy-bust operations here Friday and Thursday.

Nirvann Eclavea, 22, was collared after he sold shabu to a police agent inside a subdivision in Barangay Ibabang Iyam around 12:30 a.m. Friday, Quezon police director Colonel Audie Madrideo said in a report.


Eclavea yielded four sachets of shabu weighing 6.6 grams worth P36,300.
