Two Malaysians apprehended in Parañaque City for possession of illegal drugs

Recently in Parañaque City, two persons from Malaysia got arrested by the local police for possession of illegal drugs, according to a Manila Bulletin news report. A call from a security guard made the difference.

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

Two Malaysian nationals were arrested by members of the Parañaque City police in possession of P13,600 worth of shabu, Tuesday night, March 7.

Col. Renato Ocampo, city police chief, identified the suspects as Sing Ten, 38, secretary at a Philippine Offshore Gaming Operator (POGO) in Sinocan Corporate Center; and Sin Weng Leong, 23, also a POGO secretary at Philippine Integrated Terminal Exchange (PITX).

Ocampo said the suspects were arrested around 11:45 p.m. along Quirino Avenue, Barangay Tambo, Parañaque City.

The city police chief said members of the Tambo police substation were conducting a mobile patrol when they received a call from security guard Jomar Sanchez Matabang seeking police assistance.

The responding policemen were informed by Matabang that he caught the suspects transacting illegal drugs.  

The city police chief said confiscated from the suspects were two grams of shabu worth P13,600 and a transparent plastic tube pipe.

Ocampo said the shabu confiscated from the suspects were turned over to the Southern Police District (SPD) Forensic Unit for examination.
