Three suspected drug pushers were arrested while some P5 million worth of suspected methamphetamine hydrochloride (shabu) was seized in a sting operation in Muntinlupa City Wednesday afternoon.
Wednesday’s buy-bust operation was held at the parking area of a mall in the Alabang Muntinlupa area, radio dzBB’s Sam Nielsen reported.
Philippine National Police Anti-Illegal Drugs Special Operations Task Force spokesman Roque Merdegia Jr. told dzBB radio they acted on a tip that the suspects sold drugs in southern Metro Manila and southern Luzon.
The PNP-AIDSOTF cordoned off the van the suspects used – an old Besta-type van with license plate XCK-264.
Merdegia said they will now check the source of the drugs used by the suspects.
He voiced concerns the gang plans to sell drugs during the Christmas season. — Joel Locsin/VC, GMA News
