MANILA, Philippines — The Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) and Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) seized P6.8 million worth of crystal meth or “shabu” in Tawi-Tawi during a joint, buy-bust operation on August 9 with the help of the PCG’s K-9 Operating Unit.

According to their statement Wednesday, suspects Nurhamin Nurussin and Husna Nurussin were arrested on Tuesday after a Coast Guard sniffer dog detected one kilo worth of drugs hidden in “Chinese tea plastic bags.”


“Agad na inaresto ang dalawang suspek dahil sa paglabag sa Republic Act No. 9165 o ang Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002,” the PCG said in the statement.

(The two suspects were immediately arrested for violating Republic Act No. 9165 or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002).
