The following day, soldiers supervising the same checkpoint also collared Cagadas of Doña Asuncion Village, Pampanga, and a passenger van driver. The suspect allegedly yielded about P19,520 in shabu.

In the case of Albaran, Nephi Noli Dimaandal, spokesperson of Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) XI spokesperson, said that he was nabbed when he tried to sell a sachet of shabu to a police agent, who was a member of the team from the PDEA-XI, National Bureau of Investigation SEMRO XI and Philippine Air Force.

Dimaandal  said Albaran’s visitors were also handcuffed as they were holding a shabu session at the place.
