About 45 grams of suspected shabu with an estimated market value of P270, 000 was seized in a buy-bust operation conducted by Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) agents in San Carlos City, Negros Occidental Sunday afternoon.

Arrested during the operation at Gustilo Street in Barangay 3 were drug pushers Norhuda Angagao, 32, and Norsida Montasir, 19.

PDEA team leader Johnna Mirador yesterday said Angagao and Montasir were arrested after they sold a sachet of suspected sachet to a poseur-buyer for P1,000.

Police recovered from their possession one small heat sealed plastic sachet of suspected shabu, the P1, 000 marked money, and a plastic ice wrapper containing suspected shabu (methamphetamine hydrochloride).

Mirador said the suspects, who were under surveillance for almost a month, are detained at the lock-up cell of San Carlos City Police Station.

Police recovered from Iligan’s possession were two big elongated plastic sachets of suspected shabu, the P100 marked money, and a cellular phone. (MAP)
