AN ESTIMATED P170,000 worth of suspected shabu was seized in a drug bust operation by operatives of City Drug Enforcement Unit (CDEU) in Purok Riverside, Barangay Bata, Bacolod City, on Thursday, March 2, 2023.

This led to the arrest of Jennifer Abitong, 40, a resident of Purok Sigay, Barangay 2.

Captain Joven Mogato, head of CDEU, said the suspect was arrested after she sold a sachet of shabu to a police poseur buyer.

Police recovered from Abitong’s possession nine sachets of suspected shabu weighing 25 grams, the P1,000 marked money, a coin purse, and P200 in cash.

Mogato said Abitong, who was identified as a street-level individual in Bacolod City, was under surveillance for almost a month before her arrest.

The suspect is being held at the custodial facility of Police Station 3.

She will be charged for violation of Republic Act 9165, or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002.
