CLARK FREEPORT, Pampanga — Bureau of Customs personnel found on Sept. 23 about 1.14 kilos of “shabu” (crystal meth) inside a package from London, England.

The discovery of the shabu led to the arrest Tuesday of the package consignee in Bacoor, Cavite, the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA)-Central Luzon said in a statement Wednesday.

“The prohibited drugs were discovered in an imported container labeled as ‘Babysoft Toys,’ but as customary, the package was subjected to a thorough physical inspection and field testing using Rigaku Progeny,” Guillermo quoted a PDEA team leader as saying.
