Local police find illegal drugs worth over P180 million inside abandoned vehicle in Parañaque

Recently in the city of Parañaque, over P180 million worth of illegal drugs were recovered by local police officers inside an abandoned car and the said substances were contained in tea bags, the Manila Bulletin reported. There were also other notable items found inside.

To put things in perspective, posted below is the excerpt from the Manila Bulletin news report. Some parts in boldface…

Tea bags containing more than P180 million worth of shabu were recovered by members of the Parañaque police inside an abandoned car early morning of Thursday, Feb. 9.

Col. Renato Ocampo, city police chief, said Mark Joseph Espinosa, a barangay watchman, reported to the Tambo police sub-station the discovery of an abandoned vehicle — a red Toyota Innova with plate number CDI 9724.

Ocampo said the vehicle was discovered abandoned around 2:00 a.m. at the corner of Quirino Avenue and M. Delos Santos St., Barangay Tambo.

During the inspection conducted by members of Tambo police sub-station, operatives noticed that the SUV’s doors were left unlocked and one brown backpack, a box, and a sack were found at the backseat.

The Tambo police sub-station operatives and the Scene of the Crime Operatives (SOCO) found sealed tea packs containing 27 kilos of suspected shabu worth ₱183,600,000 inside the sack.

Ocampo said that aside from the 27 kilos of suspected shabu, police operatives also discovered two photo copies of the original receipt, car registration, deed of sale of the Toyota Innova, original receipt and car registration of a Nissan Sentra with plate number TKS 429, two photo copies of driver’s licenses and birth certificate under the name of Ma. Teresa Fernandez, identification and vaccination cards belonging to a certain Patani Barauntong and other personal belongings inside the vehicle.
