The operatives arrested the suspects at around 4:30 p.m. on Sta. Catalina Street, Brgy. Sienna in Quezon City after transacting with a PDEA agent posing as buyer.

Confiscated from suspects were 10 transparent plastic packs containing a kilogram of white crystalline substance, suspected to be shabu, with a standard price of PHP68 million and two four-wheeled drive vehicles and the buy-bust money.
