LEGAZPI CITY — Government operatives on Saturday nabbed two suspected illegal drug suppliers from Cavite and seized from them PHP3.4 million worth of shabu during an operation in Barangay San Jose, Milaor town in Camarines Sur.
Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA)- Bicol acting Regional Director Christian Frivaldo on Sunday identified the suspects as Jane Christine Luzvi Nuevo alias Jing, 32, married, and Marlon Luisse Espiritu, 23, single, both residents of Bacoor, Cavite.
The two sold shabu to an undercover PDEA agent along the Milaor-Naga by-pass road in the said village.
PDEA operatives seized from the suspects five transparent plastic bags containing suspected shabu weighing 500 grams with a street value of PHP3.4 million.
They also impounded a Ford Lynx vehicle used by the suspects in distributing illegal drugs, Frivaldo said.
The suspects are now detained in the PDEA-Camarines Sur custodial facility waiting for inquest proceedings.
Frivaldo said Saturday’s drug haul brought to PHP10.2 million the total worth of shabu seized during two weeks of drug operations in Albay and Camarines Sur.
