Cops nab Korean drug ring leader in Angeles City
ANGELES CITY — The police on Saturday (June 9) reported the discovery of a newly formed drug syndicate led by a South Korean man who was arrested in Angeles City on Friday (June 8).
Kim Sangsu, 24, was apprehended in a drug bust in his house in Barangay (village) Pampang together with a supposed cohort, Eclarina Danila, 27, said Chief Supt. Amador Corpus, Central Luzon police director.
Korean agents assisted the police, which reported seizing from Sangsu and Danila about four grams of shabu (crystal meth) packed in eight sachets and valued at P120,000.
Three mobile telephones and the marked money were also found among the suspects’ items.
Corpus said the Police Criminal Investigation and Detection Group, which led the sting operation, has yet to identity the gang that Sangsu purportedly heads.
Cases for violations of the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act (Republic Act 9165) were filed against the suspects.
Sangsu’s arrest followed the seizure of a kilogram of shabu from a man in Angeles City last Thursday (June 7).
Police did not say if the two arrests were related. TONETTE OREJAS
