AGENTS of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency arrested a suspected drug pusher in Quezon City yesterday and seized P3.4 million worth of crystal meth, it said in a statement.
The woman was arrested after she sold drugs to an anti-narcotics officer posing as a buyer at the parking lot of a mall in the village of Pasong Putik shortly after noon, said Joel Plaza, the agency’s National Capital Region director.
Authorities confiscated about 500 grams of crystal meth or shabu in transparent plastic bags from the lady, he said. She is facing charges of violating the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act.
