Before the arrest, the poseur buyer was able to buy a heat-sealed transparent sachet of suspected shabu from the duo in exchange for PHP1,000 marked money.

The arrested suspects and recovered pieces of evidence were brought to Bulacan Crime Laboratory Office for appropriate examination while criminal complaints of violation of Republic Act 9165 Section 5, 11, 12 and 26 and violation of RA 10591 will be filed in court against the two suspects.
