LUCENA CITY — Police arrested two alleged drug pushers early Sunday (April 14) and seized more than P648,000 worth of shabu (crystal meth) in separate buy-bust operations in Quezon.

Colonel Ledon Monte, Quezon police chief, reported that anti-illegal drugs operatives nabbed at 2:17 a.m. a certain “Inok,” 29, after he sold P1,000 worth of shabu to a police agent in Barangay (village) Isabang.


Authorities confiscated from the suspect, reportedly a newbie in the illegal drug trade, three plastic sachets containing 26 grams of meth worth P176,800, per the estimate of the Dangerous Drugs Board.


It is worth P530,400 in the street market at the prevailing price of P20,400 per gram, the report said.

The police also confiscated a tricycle believed to have been used by the suspect in his illegal drug activities.

In Tiaong town, local drug enforcers also collared “Alvin,” 34, in a sting operation in Barangay Talisay around 2:30 a.m.

The suspect yielded five sachets of shabu with a street value of more than P117,000.

The suspect is included in the police drug watch list as a street-level drug pusher.

Both suspects were detained and are facing complaints for violating the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002.
