THE City Drug Enforcement Unit has recovered suspected shabu (methamphetamine hydrochloride) granules left behind by a man in a fastfood chain outlet in Dumaguete on Tuesday, June 20.
A police report said the man entered the fastfood outlet around 10 a.m. Tuesday and left a sling bag to the female cashier, saying it was intended for a certain Karen.
The police station later received a call from an employee of the food chain asking for assistance regarding the delivery of the sling bag.
Responding operatives inspected the black sling bag and found two small sachets and one “bulto” (large volume) of suspected shabu and some P300 cash. The shabu was found inside a sunglasses case.
Also found inside the bag were four passport photos of a man and a community tax certificate (name withheld) issued in Bais City, Negros Oriental.
The police could not say whether the pictures and community tax certificate in the bag belonged to the person who delivered the shabu.
Senior Inspector Vann Joel Tingson said the man hurriedly left after giving the bag to the female employee. The security guard tried but failed to catch up with the man who sped away onboard his motorcycle.
The guard said the man was wearing a black hat, white T-shirt with hiphop shorts, and has tattoos on his legs.
The fastfood outlet’s CCTV camera was not functioning at the time of the incident, as it was undergoing repair, the police said. (PNA)
