MANILA, Philippines — A 21-year-old man was arrested in Quezon City on Friday after yielding over P1.6 million worth of crystal meth, locally known as shabu, according to police.

Their operation stemmed from a tip from a confidential informant detailing the illegal activities of the suspect.


QCPD said one of its operatives posed as a buyer and bought P5,000 worth of shabu from Del Mundo, which led to the latter’s arrest.
