P12.2 million worth of imported shabu seized from male claimant

SAN FERNANDO, Pampanga — Imported crystal meth (shabu) from the United States worth P12,240,000 were recovered from a male claimant following a controlled delivery operation led by the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) Central Luzon along Sultan Street, Barangay Highway Hills, Mandaluyong City on Thursday afternoon (May 11).

Authorities identified the apprehended consignee as Kyle Puna Sanchez whose real identity is Joel Mariano Reyes, 42 years old and a resident of Brgy. Dr. Fernandez, Highways Hills, Mandaluyong City.

More or less 1,808 grams of shabu amounting to P12,240,000 were taken from Mariano’s possession.

Operating teams disclosed that the shipment containing imported shabu originated from San Jose, USA, and arrived at the Port of Clark last May 9, 2023.

“The interception of the subject illegal drugs in Port of Clark emanated from information received by PDEA ICFAS (International Cooperation and Foreign Affairs Service) from foreign counterparts,” said PDEA Team Leader.
