MABALACAT CITY — Some P103,000 worth of “shabu” (crystal meth) was confiscated from a suspected drug pusher and four others in a buy-bust operation here on Friday night, Jan. 12.

In a statement issued Saturday, the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) Central Luzon said the operation was conducted at around 9 p.m. at a suspected drug den in Purok (zone) San Isidro in Barangay Dau.


A PDEA agent, who posed as a drug user, was able to buy a small sachet of shabu from suspect Kessy Tiglao, 39, using a marked P500 bill. PDEA Central Luzon tagged Tiglao as a suspected drug den maintainer.
