PDEA seizes P30M ‘shabu’ in Pampanga
ANGELES CITY, Pampanga — Operatives of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) seized some 25 kilos of alleged “shabu” (crystal meth) worth P30 million during an anti-illegal drugs operation Monday in nearby Mexico town.
Mexico Police Chief Lieutenant Colonel Joy Gollayan said the operation was led by the PDEA Special Enforcement Service from Manila.
In a local television interview, Gollayan said the local police had limited information about the operation, as they were invited only to witness the inventory and markings of seized illegal substances.
She said 25 teabags, each containing a kilo of suspected shabu, found inside an abandoned car were marked by PDEA agents.
A report obtained by the Inquirer showed that contraband was found in the trunk of a Toyota Altis in Masamat village.
It said the operation was conducted jointly with PDEA Central Luzon and PDEA Pampanga at 5:20 a.m. on Monday.
The report said nobody was arrested during the operation. No other details were mentioned in the report. INQ
