LUCENA CITY — At least P1 million worth of “shabu” (crystal meth) and an illegal firearm were seized on June 2 from three drug suspects in Antipolo City, authorities said.

The suspects were identified as Roger Telen, David Angeles, and Andrew Malbas.


Police said the three were collared by anti-illegal drug operatives at 2:15 p.m. Thursday in a buy-bust operation in Barangay Cupang.

Seized from the suspects were four sachets of shabu weighing 160 grams.

Police also reportedly recovered an undocumented .9mm-caliber loaded with four bullets.

Authorities said an informant tipped off the police on the rampant selling of illegal drugs in Purok IV Zone 8 in the said village and identified Telen as the perpetrator.

Police were tracking the source of the illegal drugs.

The suspects were placed under police custody and would face charges of violating the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002 and another case for illegal possession of a firearm. INQ
