AGENTS of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency-Central Visayas (PDEA 7) seized over P300,000 worth of illegal drugs in a raid in Cebu City on January 4, 2023.

PDEA 7 spokesperson Leia Alcantara identified the suspect as Rey Garredo alias "Itik", 46, a construction worker who resides in Sito La Guardia, Barangay Lahug, Cebu City.

Garredo could reportedly dispose of around 100 grams of shabu every week, according to a confidential informant.

Garredo has previously been imprisoned at the Sablayan Penal Colony in Occidental Mindoro for a crime of acts of lasciviousness.
