COTABATO CITY — Anti-narcotics agents seized P6.8 million worth of “shabu” from two men and a woman entrapped in Barangay Cabingan in Marawi City on Wednesday, the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) in the Bangsamoro region reported Thursday.

PDEA-Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (PDEA-BARMM) Director Gil Cesario P. Castro said the suspects did not resist arrest during the buy-bust operation. Charges in violation of the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002 are now being prepared for filing against them, he said.

Gen. Prexy D. Tanggawohn, regional police director, said the arrest was made possible through the help of Lanao del Sur Gov. Mamintal A. Adiong, Jr., and Marawi City Mayor Majul U. Gandamra. — John Felix M. Unson
