‘Shabu lab’ found in Subic
OLONGAPO CITY –– A laboratory, which could produce at least one kilogram of shabu (crystal meth) per day, was discovered in the Zambales town of Subic on Thursday, Aug. 20, following a court-directed raid.
Armed with a search warrant issued by Executive Judge Roline Ginez-Jabalde of the Olongapo City Regional Trial Court, Zambales policemen uncovered the “kitchen-type shabu laboratory” at a warehouse in Barangay Cawag.
It was equipped with substances used in the preparation of shabu, said Christian Frivaldo, Central Luzon director of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency.
The team arrested 36-year-old Joven Salvador, the caretaker of the warehouse owned by Mark Rae Lapid, who has been classified as a suspect.
