AN ESTIMATED P30,000 worth of suspected “shabu” or methamphetamine hydrochloride was seized in a drug bust by operatives of Police Station 2 at Purok Lubi, Barangay 3, Bacolod City Wednesday evening, December 4.

The operation also led to the arrest of Moises Cuadra, 18, of Purok Sigay, Barangay 2.
