Before that operation, a male suspect identified as Paul Monfort was also arrested by Las Piñas City Police’s Station Drug Enforcement Unit.

Reports from SPD stated that Monfort, considered as a high-value target, was nabbed by operatives at Barangay Talon 4, Las Piñas.  Obtained from the suspect were two small sachets and two medium-size sachets with suspected shabu inside, weighing a total of 55.3 grams.

The shabu seized from Monfort was said to be worth P376,040. Aside from the illegal drugs, a blue pouch and the P500 bill used as marked money were recovered by the cops.

SPD said the arrested individuals are now under the custody of the arresting units, while the illegal substances were turned over to the SPD Forensic Unit for chemical analysis.

SPD director Brig. Gen. Jimili Macaraeg commended the police officers for the successful drug sting operations.

“In order for us to eliminate illegal drugs we need the strong support of the community, I encourage everybody to report any illegal activities in your area so that our police will arrest these law offenders,” he said. With reports from Christine Annie Asistio, INQUIRER.net trainee
