Over P3 million worth of “shabu” were seized from a drug suspect in a hotel along Bocobo Street in Ermita, Manila Wednesday afternoon.
Agents of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) arrested Adzmin Lansa Kadil alias “Ramil Ramalan”, 27, after a drug deal with a poseur buyer inside Room 104 of Casa Bocobo Hotel around 5 p.m. on Mar. 6.
Ten packs of “shabu” weighing more or less half kilo were seized from him.
The estimated street-value of the illegal drugs is pegged at P3.4 million, PDEA said.
The suspect, meanwhile, admitted to the crime and said that he only did it out of financial need.
A case in violation of Section 5 under Article II of Republic Act 9165 or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002 was charged against him.
Meanwhile, authorities are hunting down the cohorts of the drug suspect.
