LUCENA CITY, Quezon, Philippines — Police arrested on Thursday four suspected big-time drug traffickers and seized P2.8 million worth of “shabu” (crystal meth) and marijuana in Dasmariñas City, Cavite province.

In a report on Friday, the Calabarzon Police Regional Police (PRO-4A which covers Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal, and Quezon) said anti-narcotics operatives nabbed suspects identified only as Alberto, Mariede, and Calix in a buy-bust operation around 2:30 p.m. at the parking lot of a fast food chain in Barangay Paliparan 3.


The suspects, who were tagged in the report as high-value targets in the government’s drug war, yielded two knot-tied plastic bags containing 200 grams of meth worth P1,360,000 and a digital weighing scale.


Also found in the suspects’ possession were seven bricks of marijuana weighing 7,000 grams worth P840,000.
