DAGUPAN CITY — Six drug suspects were caught with P500,000 worth of shabu (methamphetamine hydrochloride) in a suspected drug den in Sta. Barbara town in Pangasinan province.

Suspected drug dealer Cherry Ann Corpuz was arrested after she sold P6,000 worth of shabu to an undercover agent of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) at her house in Barangay (village) Minien West in Sta. Barbara at 10:30 p.m. Tuesday (March 7).

PDEA agents and Sta. Barbara policemen later caught Christopher Galsim, Mary Ann Naungayan, Rommel Reyes, Mark Arzil Garcia and Angelito Vicente taking shabu inside the house, said Rechie Camacho, head of the PDEA Pangasinan office.

Camacho said the Corpuz house had long been suspected of being a “one-stop-shop” for shabu and other illegal drugs.
