Grabe ito! P17.5 M worth na Shabu, nasakote sa NAIA Airport

P17.5 million worth of shabu (methamphetamine hydro-chloride) was captured at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) last week.

Moreover, Bureau of Customs (BOC) Chief Isidro Lapeña has turned over to the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) the two suspects.

The suspects, Francis Melvin Feliciano and Raquel Kilario Dela Cruz, were nabbed in a follow-up operation in a FedEx warehouse last Dec. 11, by presenting a fake ID of a certain Michael Espino Cruz, Lapeña said.

“The suspicious image shown during x-ray inspection prompted the 100% physical examination. The matter was referred to the Customs Anti-Illegal Drugs Task Force for initial drug test which resulted positive for methamphetamine,” Lapeña said in a statement on Thursday.

 Approximately, it was 3.5 kilos of drug shipment declared as toys that was sent by a certain Jason Lee from California, United States of America.

“The series of operations here in Naia is a result of our intensified drive against the smuggling of illegal drugs. I have directed all BOC-NAIA personnel to be on guard as the cases of drug smuggling may be alarming and rampant again,” Naia District Collector Ramon Anquilan said.

 In addition, the illegal drugs and the suspects are now under the custody of PDEA for further investigation.
