MARIVELES, Bataan — Local police confiscated more than P7.4 million worth of “shabu” (crystal meth) during a raid on a house in this town late Wednesday (March 8).
The lawmen arrested a drug suspect, who was identified as Noel dela Cruz, 38, who also yielded a .45-caliber pistol and a box of ammunition during the police operation in Barangay San Isidro.
A total of 7,480,000 worth of alleged shabu was seized from him, said Col. Romell Velasco, Bataan police director.
A minor, the suspect’s girlfriend, was reportedly turned over to the local social welfare and development office.
The raid was carried out on the strength of a search warrant issued by a local court.
Police said the operation resulted from weeks of surveillance, adding that it was one of the biggest drug hauls in the province.
