Police said Santos was caught by anti-illegal drug operatives after he sold shabu to a police agent in Barangay Calumpang around 3 p.m.

According to Colonel Audie Madrideo, Quezon police director, Quezon province was now the point of distribution of illegal drugs as there were no more Quezon-based drug syndicates.
