The raiding policemen from the Waterfront Police Station turned over the confiscated evidence to the PNP Forensic Unit 7 for chemical analysis.

Major John Lynbert Yango, the head of the Waterfront Police Station, said Farah's named came to light after their former prisoner, Dalia, identified her as the distributor and caretaker of her drug warehouse.

Dalia also yielded more than a kilogram of alleged shabu during her arrest on June 17, 2024.

The drug boss that Farah and Dalia share, known as alias Pidoy, is currently being held at the Abuyog Penal Farm in Leyte.

It was discovered that Farah had been detained for a similar offense in 2016.
