Kidapawan City, Philippines

A police team seized P2.1 million worth of imported cigarettes from a couple out to deliver the contraband to a buyer in Labangan, Zamboanga del Sur on Friday, June 24.

Police Lt. Col. Cyrus Belarmino, assistant regional chief for Region 9 of the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG), said spouses Alvin and Adelyn Prenza turned themselves in voluntarily when a police team intercepted them in Labangan, apparently on their way to a contact in the municipality.

Belarmino said the operation that led to their arrest was supported by personnel of the Zamboanga del Sur Provincial Police Office and the Labangan Municipal Police Station.

The Prenzas were immediately detained after failing to present tariff and custom clearances for their 60 cases of cigarettes from Indonesia.
