MABALACAT CITY, Pampanga – Police arrested two drug suspects who yielded some P646,000 worth of “shabu” (crystal meth) during a buy-bust operation in Barangay Duquit here on Tuesday.

In a statement, acting Pampanga police director Col. Alvin Consolacion identified the arrested suspects as Anthony Quiazon, of legal age, classified as a “high-value individual” in the police’s campaign against illegal drugs, and his companion, Cecile dela Cruz, also of legal age.


Using a marked P1,000 bill, an undercover police officer managed to purchase a small sachet of shabu from the duo.

Authorities  confiscated 95 grams of shabu from the suspects, along with a digital weighing scale and a mobile phone.


The marked peso bill was also recovered.

The buy-bust operation was jointly conducted by regional, provincial and city anti-illegal drugs operatives and members of the provincial mobile force.

The two suspects are facing a formal complaint for violation of the Comprehensive dangerous Drugs Act of 2002.
