TWO drug suspects who yielded at least P68 million worth of methamphetamine hydrochloride (shabu) were killed in a drug bust in Muntinlupa City on Sunday evening, May 23, 2021.
Philippine National Police (PNP) Chief Guillermo Eleazar identified the slain suspects as Jordan Sabandal Abrigo and Jayvee de Guzman.
They were allegedly members of the Divinagracia drug group operating in different areas of the National Capital Region (NCR) and Western Visayas, Eleazar said Monday, May 24.
“The said drug syndicate also operates in different areas of Visayas and Mindanao using cargo trucks traveling via RoRo from Batangas Port and received by their Muslim cohorts in the area,” said Eleazar.
The alleged drug group is led by Michael Divinagracia and a certain Johnson, a Chinese national currently serving imprisoned at New Bilibid Prison.
Eleazar said the suspects fired at the police and Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) agents during the drug bust in Katarungan Village 1 Sunday evening.
Eleazar said the police recovered three plastic packs of teabags marked with Chinese characters, containing around 10 kilograms of white crystalline substance suspected to be shabu with standard drug price of P68 million, one black Nissan Cefiro without plate number, two pieces of dusted P1,000 bills and boodle money amounting to P1.5 million, and two loaded caliber 45 pistols.
