Authorities have uncovered the modus operandi of a group selling cutlery with shabu inside online.
John Consulta reported on GMA News TV “Balitanghali” on Wednesday that the operatives of the National Bureau of Investigation-Cavite District Office raided four condominium units in Cupang, Muntinlupa City.
Operatives forcibly entered the unit because no one is opening the door. And when they inspected the room, it was found that the products were being sold with illegal drugs.
The NBI Cavite agents did not find any suspects in the area but they have been monitoring the activity of the online seller for two weeks.
“Nakaipit sa boxes na ‘yun ‘yung ilang sachet ng pinaghihinalaan naming droga para lang makalusot, mai-deliver nang maayos du’n sa kanilang magiging customer nang hindi pinaghihinalaan ng mga awtoridad,” said Arnold Lazaro, chief NBI Cavite District Office.
Authorities are still investigating the total amount of drugs seized during the operation, as well as their follow-up operation on the drug group with an online selling front.
P600,000 worth of shabu seized from 2 suspects in Tondo
Jose Abad Santos Police arrested two alleged drug pushers in Tondo, Manila on Wednesday.
The transaction took place on Rizal Avenue where the suspects allegedly sold P500 worth of suspected shabu.
But they still got 21 packages of suspected shabu worth P678,000.
According to police, the two suspects, both residents of Quezon City, are drivers.
The two men are between 33 and 37 years old.
It was monitored that they were still visiting Manila to allegedly sell illegal drugs.
It is possible that their patrons are also fellow drivers so they are investigating who else they are supplying drugs with.
The suspects would face selling and smuggling illegal drugs cases.
In December 2020, Philippine National Police Chief (PNP) Chief General Debold Sinas admitted that the demand for marijuana and shabu has increased during the quarantine, so they are doubling their campaign to curb illegal drug activities.
According to Sinas, due to quarantine implementation, the number of activities or going to bars where drug users mainly use ecstasy has been reduced.
