Man nabbed with half-kilo of shabu
CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY—A person was arrested with more than a half-kilo of suspected shabu, with an estimated street value of about P2.3 million, in a buy-bust operation conducted by the Divisoria police here late Wednesday afternoon.
Inspector Jessie Palencia, deputy station commander of the Divisoria police, said the suspect, Sobair Mimbalawag, was caught red-handed with the illegal drug during the operation at his house in Barangay Balulang.
Taken from Mimbalawag were 10 sachets of the alleged methamphetamine hydrochloride, weighing 512.3 grams. The suspect is considered a high-value target and it took the police several months to conduct surveillance on him, said Senior Inspector Maricris Mulat, Divisoria police station chief.
Mulat said they also confiscated bank deposit slips, some indicating amounts of P300,000.
