CLARK FREEPORT, Pampanga––Authorities discovered marijuana hash oil, or cannabis oil, worth about P206,000 inside a package that arrived at the Port of Clark in this freeport, which also led to the arrest Thursday of the consignee in Taguig City.

In a statement, the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency-Region 3 (PDEA-3) identified the arrested person as Ernest John Almazan, 36, of Makati City.

PDEA-3, with the PDEA Clark Inter-Agency Drug Interdiction Task Group, Bureau of Customs-Port of Clark, PDEA-National Capital Region, and the local police, conducted the entrapment operation to arrest the consignee of the package that arrived May 9 here from the United States.

“The illegal substances were contained in three glass bottles and were declared as drinking tea. The parcel underwent the process of X-ray, K9 sniffing, and field examination using Rigaku Progeny that led to its discovery,” the PDEA-3 said.

It said hash is the most potent and concentrated form of cannabis as it contains much higher levels of tetrahydrocannabinol than marijuana leaves.

PDEA-3 said the arrested suspect faces charges for alleged importation of dangerous drugs in violation of the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002. INQ
