MANILA, Philippines — Authorities raided on Tuesday a rented condominium unit in Quezon City allegedly being used as a drug laboratory, police said.

In a report on Wednesday, National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) said authorities arrested Korean national Jungkil Kim, 57, who according to police, is the owner of the suspected drug laboratory.


Elements of the National Bureau Investigation (NBI), Manila Police District and Masambong police station served the search warrant against Jungkil in Barangay Sto. Cristo at 3 p.m.

NCRPO acting chief Brig. Gen. Debold Sinas said Jungkil is likely a chemist, noting that the condominium unit was set-up as a drug laboratory.


Seized from the condominium unit were laboratory instruments; drug paraphernalia; chemicals; and 11 packs of a white crystalline substance.

Jungkil and seized evidence are now under police custody while the NBI is filing  appropriate charges against the Korean national.
