1.02 MILLION WORTH OF SHABU CONFISCATED IN A BUY-BUST OPS IN MAKATI, SUSPECTS JAILED

PMGEN DEBOLD M SINAS, Chief, NCRPO lauds the joint operatives of PS – 10 Kamuning Police Station, Quezon City Police District, Southern Police District, Makati City Police Station in coordination with PDEA – NCR for a successful buy-bust operation in front of Blk. 317, Lot 10, Mocking Bird St., Brgy. Rizal, Zone 9, Makati City at around 7:25 PM of Aug. 20, 2020.

The operation was plotted after a regular confidential informant appeared personally in Kamuning Police Station and reported about the illegal drug activities of a certain a.k.a “NENG” particularly selling shabu within the area of Brgy. Rizal, Makati City. The officer in-charge immediately relied the information to SDEU and directed to coordinate with PDEA – NCR about the veracity of the report.

Subsequently, PDEA – NCR confirmed that the subject person identified as NENG is under drugs watchlist. This prompted the operatives to conduct buy-bust operation wherein one of the operatives acted as a poseur buyer. They were able to meet NENG along with one female cohort. During the drug transaction one male cohort also approached NENG.

After NENG handed one large transparent plastic containing suspected shabu in exchange of the PHP 70,000.00 buy-bust money, the operatives pushed through with the pre-arranged buy-bust operation which resulted in the arrest of the three suspects.
