PDEA raid yields P1.1 billion worth of shabu in separate ops in Munitinlupa City


The Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) has always been at the forefront in the war on illegal drugs.
Since the administration of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte started the policy in curtailing if not eradicating illegal drugs in the country’s street, the relevance of PDEA has never been more relevant in these times.

The P1.1 billion worth of shabu that was seized by PDEA agents right inside the exclusive posh Ayala Alabang Village in Muntinlupa City is being presumed to be from the “Golden Triangle region” – the interweaving borders of Thailand, Laos and Myanmar.
Hardworking and dedicated PDEA Director-General Aaron Aquino made this assessment citing the similarities in the way shabu was packaged which is very similar as seen to those “Golden Triangle Region’’ with those by illegal drug syndicates operating in some areas in Mindanao.
There have been records of seizure done by our local anti-narcotic operatives in the past of illegal drugs with similar packaging methods that passed through the coastline a signature shipside smuggling scheme being employed in the “Golden Triangle Region.’’
This transshipment method of illegal drugs is common in countries like Malaysia, Myanmar, and Vietnam.
The suspects will face cases for violation of Section 5, 11, 12, 14 and 15, Article II of RA 9165 (Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act Of 2002)
