BATANGAS CITY — At least two kilograms of suspected high-grade “shabu” (methamphetamine hydrochloride) worth around P2 million were seized in a car abandoned by a suspected drug pusher at Batangas Port here Tuesday morning, police said.

The car belonged to a suspected drug pusher that was targeted in a drug buy-bust in BF Homes, Parañaque, around 12:15 a.m.


Supt. Herbert Baylon, assistant chief of police for operations of the Parañaque police station, said that operatives of the city police’s Station Drug Enforcement Unit conducted the buy-bust against a man they identified by his alias, “RJ”, a resident of Aguirre Avenue, also in BF Homes.

The suspect evaded arrest by escaping onboard his car towards the South Luzon Expressway after he sensed that he was transacting with a police officer.


Authorities located the vehicle at around 8:40 a.m. at the Batangas Port parking area still containing the illegal drugs. The suspect was nowhere to be found.  SFM/rga
