An employee of the LBC cargo forwarder yesterday refuted a news report published on the November 24, 2013 stating that he is the operator of an x-ray machine that detected eight packs of shabu at the Zamboanga City Airport last November 21, 2013.

Edrick Lledo came to the Daily Zamboanga Times editorial office to clarify that he is an LBC employee and has nothing to do with the x-ray machine at the Zamboanga City airport.

Lledo said he and other LBC employees were on duty at that time when some packages sent through LBC from Manila were turned over to the airport staff (CAAP) for x-ray examination. One of the packages containing a pair of sandals was detected to have concealed crystalline substance suspected to be shabu.

Lledo’s supervisor said they merely turned over all packages to CAAP personnel who are in charge of the x-ray machine.

Lledo’s name was erroneously mentioned in a police report as the x-ray machine operator.

“I am not the x-ray machine operator. I am an LBC employee,” Lledo emphasized to DZT.
