A SUSPECTED drug den in Magalang, Pampanga was dismantled by combined efforts of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) and Philippine National Police (PNP) on Wednesday evening, September 23.

PDEA-Central Luzon Director Christian Frivaldo said the illegal den located in San Isidro Resettlement Center is also believed to be the main drop-off point of illegal substances that will be distributed across Magalang.

During the operation, five individuals identified as Rene Pamintuan and Melody Jaime, both are listed as target personalities; and Raul Cabigting, Robin Pamintian and Ronnel Dimatulac were also arrested.

The sting also yielded six sachets containing about 10 grams of methamphetamine hydrochloride (shabu), assorted drug paraphernalia and the buy-bust money.
