CEBU CITY—At least P150 million worth of shabu, or crystal meth, had been seized from an alleged big-time narcotic distributor in Lapu-Lapu City, Mactan Island on Wednesday (Oct. 21).

The suspected big-time drug dealer, Gilbert Lumanog, was arrested during the drug bust by the Central Visayas police and National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO).


Brig. Gen. Albert Ignatius Ferro, director of the Central Visayas police, said Lumanog was a member of a drug syndicate operating in Cebu and Metro Manila.


Ferro said Lumanog was “one of our to priority high-value targets” in Central Visayas.

At least 22 kilos of meth seized from Lumanog was packed in tea plastic bags, which Ferro said made it difficult to identify.

Charges of violating the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002 are going to be filed against Lumanog, a non-bailable case.

Lumanog is currently detained at the Central Visayas police office.
