Philippine Drug Enforcement Operatives (PDEA) have arrested three suspects and seized from them a kilogram of crystal meth (shabu) worth about P5 million in a buy-bust operation on Tuesday at a mall in Pasay City.


In a spot report, the agency said the illegal drugs were seized from the three suspects, not two as earlier reported, at the mall’s  parking lot at about 11:30 a.m.

PDEA identified the suspects as Malina Nano, Aladin Amiril Salilagia, and Abner Nano.


They allegedly conspired to sell a kilogram of shabu to a PDEA agent who had acted as a poseur buyer.
