CEBU CITY, Philippines — Police here expect a dent in the supply of ‘shabu’ following the P6.7 billion drug haul in Tondo, Manila last Saturday, October 8, 2022.
Police said the haul has a huge effect in the region because Cebu is the ‘transshipment’ of illegal drugs going to other provinces.
“Dako kay ni syag effect. For sure, kanang gidaghanon nga almost 1,000 kilos nga shabu, for sure there will be portion of that nga intended for Cebu considering that Cebu is the transshipment sa tanang mga drugs going to other provinces,” Police Lieutenant Colonel Wilbert Parilla, deputy director for administration of the Cebu City Police Office, said.
The drug haul in Tondo, Manila was tagged by Interior Secretary Benhur Abalos Jr., as the largest drug haul in the country to date.
