MANILA, Philippines— The National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) is currently looking into the connection of the batch of methamphetamine or shabu that was seized in a buy-bust operation in Marikina on Monday night to the contraband confiscated by the PNP Drug Enforcement Group in Makati in November.
NCRPO acting director PBGen. Debold Sinas said both contrabands were put in teabags.
The official said he will have the seized product analyzed at the PNP Crime Laboratory to determine if it came from only one source.
“Yung pinaglalagyan nito ay teabag kaya nga ang suspetsa namin ay baka part ito ng nahuli sa Makati na 374. Pina compare na namin sa crime lab yung tea bag kung pareho ang appearance. Kasi pag sinabi ng crime lab na pareho meaning na distribute na yung iba,” Sinas said.
On Monday night, authorities arrested a male-female partner in Marikina City where they seized over one kilogram of shabu with a street value of Php 7-million.— (with details from Lea Ylagan) /mbmf
