AUTHORITIES have intercepted a parcel containing methamphetamine hydrochloride or shabu bound for Israel in the warehouse of an international express courier services in Pasay City, the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) said Saturday.
Operatives of the Ninoy-Aquino International Airport Inter-Agency Drug Interdiction Task Group (NAIA-IADITG) discovered the sealed transparent sachet of shabu inside the heel of the right pair of men's slippers placed inside the outbound package, said Undersecretary Arturo Cacdac, Jr., PDEA director general.
On May 12, duty officers of PDEA Regional Office-National Capital Region (PDEA RO-NCR) Airport Interdiction Unit under lawyer Jacquelyn de Guzman went to the DHL warehouse to verify reports of a parcel containing suspected shabu that was discovered by Bureau of Customs (BOC) officers around 1 p.m.
"Samples of the seized white crystalline substance were subjected to qualitative examination and yielded positive results for the presence of shabu," Cacdac said.
The package was sent by a certain Don Don Fernandez with address at Lumbang, Lipa City, Batangas and consigned to a certain Moshie Koffman of No. 7 Petah Tikva, Israel. (SDR/Sunnex)
