Zamboanga City, Philippines

Authorities foiled on Monday, August 8, an attempt to ship from Zamboanga City some P3.4-million worth of crystal meths, popularly known as shabu, to a consignee in Quezon City, a report reaching the Bangsamoro regional police office said.

The report said the package was consigned to a certain Dayana Ismael, whose address in the waybill of the JRS forwarding firm is Philcoa, Commonwealth, Quezon City.  

The waybill also indicated that the package, containing 500 grams of shabu, was shipped to Ismael by an alleged resident of Maluso town in Basilan named Farhana Maddih.

In a statement, the regional office of Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA-9) in Zamboanga City placed at P3.4 million the value of the shabu in the seized package, now in its custody.

The package was detected while still at the cargo section of the Zamboanga City Airport by PDEA-9 agents and personnel of the police’s Aviation Security-9 using drug sniffing dogs.

Brig. Gen. Arthur Cabalona, director of the Police Regional Office-Bangsamoro Autonomous Region (PRO-BAR), said he has directed the Basilan Provincial Police Office to help the PDEA-9 validate the exact identity of the shipper who is allegedly from Maluso.
