QUEZON, Isabela –– Police on Sunday, April 18, recovered several bricks of dried marijuana worth P37.3 million that a fleeing suspected drug pusher abandoned inside a car in Tabuk City, Kalinga province.

When the unidentified suspect reached an irrigation canal, he abandoned his car and the marijuana bricks that weighed 311 kilos, said Col. Davy Vicente Limmong, Kalinga police director, in a statement.

The operation stemmed from a tip that marijuana bricks from Tinglayan, Kalinga will pass through Tabuk City.
