A 27-YEAR-OLD man was arrested and more than P75,000 worth of shabu was seized in a buy-bust at Mabini Extension, Barangay 33-D on Saturday.
He was identified as Kevin Juntilla, a resident of the area.
Nephi Noli Dimaandal, Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency XI, said the suspect turned over a sachet of shabu worth P1,000 to an undercover operative, which led to his arrest.
Seized from him were about five grams worth of shabu, with an estimated street value of P75,000, one medium plastic sachet of dried marijuana leaves, assorted drug paraphernalia, and the buy-bust money.
Juntilla is now detained in the PDEA XI facility while the seized drugs were submitted to the laboratory office for tests.
