THE Quezon City Police District (QCPD) announced on Saturday the arrest of four persons, who allegedly yielded over P27 million worth of shabu (methamphetamine hydrochloride) during a sting operation on Friday night.
In a joint operation with the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA), QCPD Director BGen. Ronnie Montejo said his men ‒ from the La Loma Police Station, under LtCol. Florian Reynado ‒ arrested Jinky Pascio Arbolado, Jhon Christopher Guzman, Cristina Burill and Siloren Tabiano, who were all of legal age.
The official report showed the QCPD-PDEA team conducted the buy-bust operation along Biak na Bato Street corner Cuenco Street in Barangay Sto. Domingo past 8 p.m.
An asset posing as a buyer solicited shabu from the suspects, who arrived in a black-and-white Honda Civic type R with plate number WFC653, said Montejo.
Lawmen immediately collared the suspects as soon as the buy-bust money exchanged hands, stated the QCPD report.
Aside from the buy-bust money, police seized from them five mobile phones and around 4,000 grams of shabu, valued at P27,200,000.
PDEA Regional Office-National Capital Region agents took the suspects into custody to file appropriate charges against them.
Montejo was quick to commend the operatives for their relentless anti-illegal drug operations, resulting in the arrest of the alleged drug dealers and the confiscation of shabu.
