Police Lt. Gen. Vicente Danao, Jr., officer-in-charge of the Philippine National Police (PNP), said the operation was carried out after a poseu buyer was able to transact with the suspects for a large quantity of shabu.

Seized from them were 15 kilos of shabu, one sack bag, one backpack, two paper bags, one cellphone, one ID card, and the buy-bust money.

“I congratulate our drug enforcement operatives for another big accomplishment. This only signifies that our PNP operations will be more aggressive on illegal drugs especially against high-value personalities and syndicates,” said Danao.

“Your PNP will not stop until the last person in the drug list is put to jail”, he added.

The arrested suspects are now under the custody of the police and a case for violation of Republic Act 9165, or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2020, is being prepared against the two suspects.
