AN ESTIMATED P54,400 worth of suspected shabu was seized in a drug bust operation by operatives of Police Station 7 at Purok Kabugwason, Barangay Mansilingan, Bacolod City around 7:10 p.m. Thursday, January, 26, 2023.

The operation also led to the arrest of Bernadette Prado, 40, a resident of the said village.

Bonilla said Prado, who was identified as a high-value individual in Bacolod City, was under surveillance for almost a month before her arrest.

The suspect is detained at the custodial facility of Police Station 6.

She will face drug charges.
