/ 01:17 AM November 16, 2016

Employees of a bus company were stunned when they found nearly 10 kilos of marijuana in one of the unclaimed packages at their terminal in Quezon City.

According to the police, employees of Florida Bus company near the corner of Edsa and Kamias Road made the find as they were sorting unclaimed packages for possible disposal.

When they opened one of the boxes, they discovered 10 bricks of dried marijuana leaves. The drugs worth around P130,000 were turned over to the District Anti-Illegal Drugs-Special Operations Task Group for investigation.


Senior Supt. Guillermo Lorenzo Eleazar, Quezon City police director, said the contraband looked like it had been left behind months ago.


“We still don’t know who is responsible for this, but we will let our crime laboratory do its examination,” he told the Inquirer.

The box had the name “Ermillinda G. Torres” written on it.

Eleazar said this was the biggest amount of marijuana they confiscated from a bus terminal since the beginning of the war on drugs.
