OLONGAPO CITY – Anti-narcotics officers on Wednesday confiscated a package containing at least 1 kilo of alleged “shabu” (crystal meth) worth 6.9 million pesos from a warehouse inside the compound of Clark International Airport in the province of Pampanga.
In a report, the Port of Clark Bureau of Customs said a team consisting of the bureau, the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) and local police conducted a controlled delivery operation around 8:30 p.m.
The package arrived from Malaysia on March 12 and was declared a children’s toy, but inspection and physical examination led to the discovery of 31 plastic bags containing the illegal drugs.
Authorities arrested Charlene Nworisa, a resident of Villa Crystal Phase 1, Barangay Bagumbong Dulo in Caloocan City when the package was delivered to her.
The suspect faces charges of violating the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002.
