CLARK FREEPORT, Pampanga––Authorities arrested on Wednesday a woman in Hermosa town, Bataan province, a day after the Bureau of Customs Port of Clark (BOC-Clark) discovered some P3 million worth of suspected “shabu” (crystal meth) in a package consigned to her from South Africa.

In a statement, the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency-Region 3 (PDEA-3) identified the suspect as Arlyne Gemzon.

“The illegal drugs were concealed in a package declared as clothing from Capetown, South Africa,” it said.

After finding the shabu, BOC-Clark notified PDEA-3, and a “controlled delivery operation” was planned and undertaken in cooperation with the police and military to arrest the consignee.
