The Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) on Wednesday (June 17) seized P1 million worth of suspected illegal drugs in a buy-bust operation in Taguig City. Three individuals were arrested.

According to PDEA Spokesperson Derrick Carreon, the suspects might have found out that they were transacting with authorities which led to a small encounter.

“Nakatunog yata, ayun pinagbabangga niya na iyong sasakyan ng tropa (They suspected something so they hit the vehicle used by our troops), so in order to immobilize his vehicle, they shot his tire,” he said.

No one was injured during the encounter and authorities arrested Edwin Pascual, Vyron Flores, and Allan Mendoza and 200 grams of shabu were seized.

The suspects will face charges for violating Section 5 and Section 11 of Republic Act 9165 of the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002. AAC (with reports from Lea Ylagan)
