One of the warehouses that stored manufactured bed foams also kept drums of toluene, a chemical ingredient used in making shabu (methamphetamine hydrochloride), De Guzman said.

The owner of the toluene could not present any clearance or permit from the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency, which is a requirement for purchasing and storing the chemical derivative, she said.
