MANILA — Three people — including two Chinese nationals — were arrested, and around P25 million worth of suspected shabu (methamphetamine hydrochloride) were seized during a buy-bust operation in Makati City, on Wednesday night.

Chief Supt. Joel Pagdilao, director of the National Capital Region Police Office, identified those arrested in the operation as He Kaibei, 28, and Henry Lam, 43, both from Fujian, China; and Annaliza Villegas, 45.   They were nabbed at the parking lot of Max’s Restaurant along Magallanes Ave. at the corner of Humabon St., Magallanes Village, at 11:15 p.m.


Pagdilao said the operation, led by members of the Regional Anti-Illegal Drugs-Special Operation Task Group, came after a month-long surveillance on the three suspects.

The three were arrested after the police-poseur buyer “bought” P10 million worth of the suspected shabu.


Pagdilao said around five kilograms worth of the suspected drugs were seized from the suspects.

Charges for violation of the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act will be filed against the three.  SFM
