To put things in perspective, posted below is an excerpt from the Manila Bulletin news report. Some parts in boldface…
A 37-year-old man was arrested by members of the Las Piñas police Station Drug Enforcement Unit (SDEU) during a buy-bust operation and confiscated from him more than P6-million worth of shabu on Tuesday afternoon, Dec. 13.
Col. Jaime Santos, city police chief, said the suspect, identified as Jayson Lucas, alias Brad, and tagged as a high value individual in the illegal drugs’ list was arrested around 4:30 p.m. along Bayabas St. BF International Village, CAA Las Piñas City.
Santos said the SDEU conducted a surveillance for the arrest of Lucas after receiving numerous complaints on his illegal drug trade in the community.
The city police chief said the SDEU was able to confiscate from Lucas more or less 1 kg. of shabu worth P6.8 million and three plastic sachets of shabu with a street value of P22,440.
Santos said the confiscated P6.8 million shabu was hidden inside sealed Chinese tea bags. He said the confiscated drugs were turned over to the Southern Police District (SPD) Forensic Unit for chemical analysis.
The city police chief said Lucas is now detained at the SDEU custodial facility and was charged for violation of Sec. 5 and 11, Art. II of Republic Act 9165 (Comprehensive Dangerous Drug Act of 2002).
