Confiscated from their possession were six sachets of shabu, five aluminum foil strips, two improvised tooters, two disposable lighters, two folded tissue paper, one small strip of foil and P300 marked money.

Report disclosed that Cajetano was the target of the buy-bust operation. He sold a sachet of shabu to a police poseur buyer in exchange of P300 marked money.

Police said that during inspection, lawmen recovered five more sachets of shabu from Cajetano’s possession.

The weekly buy-bust operations of the local police indicate the widespread use of shabu in majority of the brangays in Zamboanga City.– Dan Toribio Jr.
