SAN RAFAEL, Bulacan — Soldiers seized on Sunday a gun and several sachets of suspected shabu (methamphetamine hydrochloride) which were abandoned by a man they stopped at a checkpoint in Donya Remedios Trinidad (DRT) town.

Roger Enriquez, who was stopped for driving without a helmet, eluded arrest by running towards a hill in Barangay (village) Pulong Sampalok, leaving behind the drugs, a caliber .22 revolver and a motorcycle.
