PDEA thwarts Baguio-bound delivery of P3M ecstasy drugs from Germany
MANILA, Philippines — Anti-narcotics operatives on Thursday arrested a suspected drug personality who brought to Baguio City a parcel from Germany containing over P3 million worth of party drugs called ecstasy.
The Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) identified the suspect as Elisa Millare, 52, a resident of Quezon City.
Initial reports from PDEA said the suspect was arrested in front of the Bristle Ridge Condominium along Ambuklao Road, in Barangay Gibraltar, Baguio City, at 12:30 p.m. Thursday.
Operatives confiscated from the suspect a parcel declared as “bedsheets and shoes” but which later yielded four pouches made of duct tape containing a total of 1,783 ecstasy tablets, with a street value of P3,031,100.
The parcel also contained a pair of shoes, two-bed sheets, one black clipboard attached with an authorization letter, a student license permit, and a photocopy of the consignee’s ID bearing the name of “Joyce Ann Jores San Antonio.”
The contraband was shipped by a certain “Fostina Obobo” from Germany, consigned to “Joyce Antonoof” in Bristle Ridge Residences in Baguio City. It was not immediately known if Millare was the same person as San Antonio or Antonoof.
