Police seized about Php 1.7 million worth of suspected illegal drugs and arrested three suspects during a buy-bust operation on Monday, Nov. 18, at a condominium in Galas, Quezon City.
Galas Philippine National Police chief PMaj Bernardo Pascua identified the suspects as Emelyn Luna, 35; Zainudin Encio, 45; and Mark Mercado, 33.
Pascua said that they put Luna under surveillance after an informant told them of her illegal drug transactions.
After confirming her illegal activities, the police launched the buy-bust operation which also resulted in the arrest of Encio, and Mercado, who was found buying illegal drugs from the two other suspects.
Luna, meanwhile, denies the allegations against her.
The suspects face charges for violation of Republic Act 9165, also known as the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act.
