7.5M worth of party drugs seized at Manila post office

The Bureau of Customs on Wednesday presented to the media some P7.5 million worth of party drugs, including Ecstasy, which they intercepted at the Manila Central Post Office.

The BOC said the drugs were found hidden in five parcels of toys from Netherlands.


Three of the five parcels were consigned to a certain Don Arnold, while the two others to a certain Martin Domingo.

BOC Chief Nicanor Faeldon said smuggling of party drugs continue despite the government’s campaign against illegal drugs because the demand for it continues.


Lawyer Arnel Alcaraz, OIC deputy commissioner, said the modus of these drug syndicates is to order illegal drugs online using fake identity, utilizing bitcoins as payment, and coursing the said transit of said parcels via the Phil Postal Service.
