Authorities arrested five individuals and confiscated P30-million worth of illegal drugs from separate buy-bust operations in Quezon City and Taguig City.
Joint operatives from Quezon City Police District (QCPD) and Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) conducted the anti-drug operation around 8pm at Barangay Sto. Domingo, Quezon City last Saturday which resulted in the arrest of four suspects.
Police Brigadier General Ronnie Montejo, QCPD Director, said the suspects were arrested after they received payment from a police poseur buyer.
