MANILA — Police arrested a suspected high-value drug suspect and seized some two kilograms of high-grade crystal meth or shabu on Wednesday night in Marilao, Bulacan.

Field reports from Police Colonel Relly Arnedo, Provincial Director of Bulacan Police Provincial Office, identified the arrested suspect as Marlon Palmario (44) of Novaliches, Caloocan City.

Palmario was arrested in Barangay Loma De Gato while in the act of selling one (1) medium-sized, knot-tied, transparent plastic bag containing suspected shabu to a police undercover operative.

Confiscated from the suspect were two packs of high-grade shabu concealed in a Chinese tea bag with a total estimated weight of 2,050 grams with an estimated street value of P13,940,000, and 67 pieces of one-thousand-peso bill boodle money.

At the PNP National Headquarters, PNP chief General Rodolfo S Azurin Jr. quickly congratulated the arresting teams and PNP Units involved in the operation.

“I commend the men and women of Bulacan PPO and the entire Police Regional Office 3 under the command of PBGen Cesar R Pasiwen, PRO3 Regional Director, for their dedication in apprehending drug offenders and holding them accountable for their actions, as part of our ongoing campaign against illegal drugs, in support of the BIDA Program of DILG,” PGen Azurin stated.
