Senior Superintendent Alberto Ferro, acting head of the Philippine National Police (PNP) Anti-Illegal Drugs Group, said the drugs were seized from the North Shore Island Resort in Barangay Cullao at past 2 p.m. Sunday.
Police operatives dug up the shabu placed in black plastic bags stuffed in big ice chests. Ferro said the drugs recovered has a street value of P900 million. Investigations are ongoing to identify the owner of the recovered drugs. Philippine National Police chief Director General Ronald dela Rosa on Monday afternoon presented the confiscated drugs at the police main headquarters in Camp Crame, Quezon City.
Dela Rosa said he received information about the drugs kept at the resort and upon his assumption as PNP chief, he ordered Ferro to verify the information. Dela Rosa said that based in the information given to him, the illegal drugs came from either China or Taiwan and was shipped to Cagayan. “Dadalhin dapat ito sa Binondo, andun yung Chinese na consignee,” he said. He could not immediately identify the consignee.
