Authorities have arrested a Chinese and two other suspects in a buy-bust operation that also yielded 10 kilograms of suspected shabu in Parañaque City, GMA’s Marisol Abdurahman reported on “Balitanghali” on Saturday.
In the report, Quezon City Police District District Anti-Illegal Drugs Chief C/Insp. Enrico Figueroa estimated at P30 million the worth of the seized contraband.
Figueroa admitted police operatives had difficulty apprehending the members of the drug syndicate as they kept on changing the venue of the drug deal.
“Yun po ‘yung usapan na titingnan muna nila ‘yung pera kung may pambili tayo tsaka po nagkaroon ng kasunduan na sa labas ng Quezon City ibibigay,” Figueroa said.
Finally, the suspects agreed to have the transaction in a location along Macapagal Avenue, and authorities got a chance to aprehend the suspects who were on two vehicles.
“Organized na sila, may mga contact na rin sila hindi natin masabi basta may mga contact sila na tumutulong sa kanila. Marami pong ipapahamak ‘yung sampung kilo na yan, mga kabataan natin,” he added.
The suspects identified as Chinese national Yong Han Cai, Aira Raneses and Jamil Lawi have denied the allegations against them.
They are facing charges for violation of the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act. —Andrei Medina/LBG,GMA News
