Pitogo was traveling from Cotabato City to Nabunturan, Davao de Oro. A “thorough” inspection of his vehicle led to the discovery of five plastic packs of different sizes containing a substance believed to be meth.

The military said a total of 77 suspects had been caught at checkpoints of the Task Force Davao this year with more than P14 million in illegal drugs seized.
