LEGAZPI CITY — Anti-narcotics operatives arrested a big-time drug suspect and seized P3.4 million worth of “shabu” (crystal meth) in a buy-bust operation in Naga City in Camarines Sur province on Tuesday afternoon.

Police Master Sergeant Tobias Bongon, Naga City police spokesperson, said in a report that Eymard Rey Batan, 43, was arrested in Barangay (village) Peñafrancia at around 2:05 p.m.


Authorities recovered two knot-tied plastic bags containing 500 grams of shabu, a rolled aluminum foil with traces of shabu and a lighter.

Mark Anthony Viray, provincial officer of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency Camarines Sur, said Batan, who got his drug supply from Muntinlupa, was operating in the city and the nearby towns of Camaligan and Calabanga.


Viray said the suspect previously surrendered to the police during the “Oplan Tokhang” or anti-illegal drugs campaign of the government.

Now arrested, Batan will face a charge of violating the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002.
