Shabu recovered from fastfood outlet in Dumaguete City


DUMAGUETE CITY — The Dumaguete City Drug Enforcement Unit (CDEU) has recovered suspected shabu granules left behind by a male person in a fastfood chain outlet here on Tuesday.

A police report said the suspect entered the fastfood outlet around 10:00 a.m. Tuesday and left a sling bag to the female cashier, saying that it was intended for a certain Karen.

The police station later received a call from an employee of the food chain asking for assistance regarding the delivery of the sling bag.

Responding operatives headed by Sr. Inspector Vann Joel Tingson inspected the black sling bag and found two small sachets and one “bulto” (large volume) of suspected shabu granules and some P300 cash. The shabu was found inside a sunglasses case.

Also found inside the bag were four passport-size pictures of a male person and a community tax certificate (name withheld) issued in Bais City, Negros Oriental.

Police could not say whether the pictures and community tax certificate in the bag belonged to the person who delivered the “shabu.”

Tingson said the suspect hurriedly left after giving the bag to the female employee. The security guard tried but failed to catch up with the man who immediately sped away on his motorcycle.

The guard said the man was wearing a black hat, white t-shirt with hiphop shorts and tattoos on his legs.

The fastfood outlet’s CCTV camera was not functioning at the time as it was undergoing repair, the police said. Juancho Gallarde and Judy Flores Partlow/
