PASIG CITY, — Two suspected peddlers of dried marijuana leaves were nabbed by members of the Eastern Police District inside a residential unit in Barangay Caniogan Monday morning (October 8).
The suspects were identified as Carlitos Johanne Arpilleda and Jayson Peralta.
They were caught in possession of about half a kilogram of high-grade marijuana leaves valued at around P1 million which they claimed was shipped from California in the United States.
The suspects admitted that the contraband was ordered through an online website and delivered by an international courier into the country.
The two will face charges for violating the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002.
Authorities are now investigating as to how the contraband was able to slip inspection.
