Abpi did not resist arrest but was visibly stunned by the turn of events.

Samoraga said Abpi had been under surveillance since a successful drug deal with an undercover agent was made last month.

Seized from him was 50 grams of meth in a plastic pouch, the boodle money consisting of one original P1,000-bill and 99 pieces of colored photo copies of P1,000 bills.

Abpi is now detained at the Pigcawayan jail.
