The operation was led by Wilkins Villanueva, PDEA director for the National Capital Region, armed with a search warrant from a Cabanatuan City court. He said the Magalang laboratory was part of a network of five facilities that have been supplying drugs in Luzon.

Wang said he operated the piggery for the last two years and said he had no knowledge about the laboratory under the warehouse where feeds were milled and mixed.  SFM
