P.5M in shabu seized

More than P500,000 worth of suspected shabu was recovered by the police in two successive anti-drug operations yesterday in Himamaylan City and Isabela, Negros Occidental, that also led to the arrest of 13 suspects, Police Supt. Antonietto Canete said yesterday.

Canete, who is the Himamaylan City police chief and head of the Provincial Anti-Illegal Drugs Special Operations Task Group in the 5th and 6th districts, said their buy-bust operation and subsequent follow-ups at Purok 6, Brgy. Aguisan, Himamaylan City, led to the arrest of 12 suspects, for violation of RA 9165, or the Comprehensive Drug Act of 2002.

It also yielded an estimated 75 grams of suspected shabu with a street market value of P450,000, assorted shabu paraphernalia and a .38 caliber revolver with ammunition, he added.moremoremore
