Authorities found him possessing three plastic sachets of crystal meth with an estimated Dangerous Drugs Board (DDB) value of P374,000.



Anti-illegal drug operatives in Dasmariñas City in Cavite also busted Abdul Majeed Rascal, Anthony Rafanan, and Yusoff Diamla in a sting operation at 10:15 p.m. in Barangay Salawag.
