40 kgs of suspected shabu turned over to police in southern Aurora town

DINGALAN, Aurora – A 50 year-old man turned over Thursday afternoon to police authorities more or less 40 kilos of suspected shabu in this town.

Geronimo Magallon, 50, married, a resident of Barangay Matawe, this town, turned over to Police Inspector Desiree Buluag, chief of police of Dingalan Police Station (DPS), the enamel cauldron containing more or less 40 kilos of grayish crystalline substance of suspected methamphetamine hydrochloride or shabu.

Buluag said that the recovered items were found by Geronimo and his wife while fishing along the coastal reef of Barangay Matawe last October 17 at about 1a.m.

Geronimo told Buluag that they happened to see the cauldron half buried on the sandy shore believed to be wiped by big waves caused by recent typhoon Karen.

The scene where the item was recovered was dug up by elements of this station for possible recovery of other cauldrons but to no avail.

The cauldron containing substance, in coordination with Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency, Police Regional Office, is placed in custody of the police station for temporary disposition and investigation.

The substance was brought Friday afternoon to the Aurora Crime Laboratory for examination.

Buluag said that they are still investigating the case and trying to discover whether there are other shabu substance or laboratory that possibly exist in this town. PNA – northboundasia.com
