The Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) has apprehended an estimate of Php 30 million worth of illegal drugs during one of its operations in Angeles, Pampanga.
As the agency continues its fight against the illicit substance, PDEA on Tuesday was able to seize 5 kilograms of shabu in the home of a Chinese drug suspect identified as Yiye Chen.
According to authorities, they were able to locate the high-grade shabu on the ceiling of the house of the suspect in Hensonville, Barangay Malabanias.
According to Director Levi Ortiz of the PDEA Soecial Enforcement Service, Chen has previously been arrested on August 5, 2016 after authorities were able to apprehend some 36 kilos of shabu on the foreign national.
