BAGUIO CITY, Philippines  — Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) Cordillera and Police Regional Drug Enforcement Unit (RDEU) personnel bagged the Cordillera Administrative Region’s biggest haul of illegal drugs in a morning raid in Baguio City on Wednesday, March 29. 

Police Cordillera Director Brig. Gen. David Perado said anti-illegal drug operatives discovered 575 kilograms of shabu from the residence of a Chinese national.

Officials estimated the haul’s value at P4 billion. 

The contraband were packed in teabags with Chinese markings.

Arrested in the operation was Chinese national Hui “Tan” Ming. 

Peredo said the RDEU operatives earlier sought a search warrant from a local court after sustained intelligence work on the suspect. 

He also directed police in the region to increase their efforts to rid the six provinces and two cities in the Cordillera of illegal drugs. –
