MABALACAT CITY, Pampanga––Policemen arrested a suspected drug peddler who allegedly yielded some P2 million worth of “shabu” (crystal meth) in a buy-bust operation on Friday, Feb. 5., in Mexico town in this province.

The Central Luzon police office identified the suspect in a statement Monday as Nabil Macadatar, 26, of Dasmariñas City in Cavite.


It said operatives from the regional drug enforcement unit, regional intelligence division, and local police conducted the anti-illegal drug operation at Lagundi village in Mexico.

Plastic bags containing suspected shabu weighing 305 grams were allegedly confiscated from the suspect.


The police said they also impounded the suspect’s sports utility vehicle and recovered the marked peso bill used in the sting operation.

The suspect was facing charges for violations of the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002.

Central Luzon police director Brig. Gen. Matthew Baccay lauded the operating team and vowed to go after persons selling and distributing illegal drugs in the region.
