Valenzuela raid yields P3B shabu

Filipino and Chinese drug law enforcers have joined hands in anti-narcotics operations that paid off big time: a drug bust that netted 604 kilos of shabu with street value of P3 billion, in Valenzuela City last May 26.
The cooperative effort was made possible after President Duterte’s state visit to China on Oct. 16 to 21, 2016.
During the visit, the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency and the Office of the National Narcotics Control Commission signed the Protocol On Cooperation governing intelligence sharing and joint operations.
The latest drug bust involved the PDEA, ONNCC, Narcotics Control Bureau of the Ministry of Public Security, People’s Republic of China, Chinese Customs, Bureau of Customs of the Philippines, National Bureau of Investigation and the Philippine National Police.
The cooperation paid off, with recovery of the shabu in two warehouses at 5510 De Castro Subdivision, Paso de Blas and Barangay Ugong.
Fidel Anoche Dee, Filipino consignee of the shabu, was arrested during the operation.
Meanwhile, anti-narcotics agents seized around 72 kilos of shabu, with an estimated street value of P360 million, during a raid on a three-storey warehouse in Las Piñas City on June 13.
The Las Piñas raid was an offshoot of two recent police operations in Parañaque, which led to the arrest of Taiwanese Chen Teho Chan and the seizure of shabu worth P280 million.
