The three suspected drug pushers who were arrested in a buy-bust operation in Quezon province yielded 23 sachets of illegal drugs with an estimated worth of P210,600, police said.
Senior Supt.

The suspects were carrying 23 plastic sachets of shabu weighing 117 grams.
A police agent tagged Flores who came from Silang, Cavite as the supplier of shabu to two big-time drug pushers in Lucena and Pagbilao.
