Las Piñas raid nets ₱1.4-B shabu

Operatives of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) arrested three Taiwanese nationals and seized more than ₱1.4 billion worth of shabu, chemicals and laboratory equipment at a clandestine drug laboratory in Las Piñas City and a warehouse in Parañaque on Tuesday night 5th July 2016.

Wilkins Villanueva, director of the PDEA National Capital Region Office, identified the three arrested suspects as Shi Ming Tsai, Kuo Chuan Cheng and Chun Ming Lin.

Tsai and Cheng, both suspected chemists, were arrested in a house that was turned into a shabu laboratory in Barangay Pamplona Dos in Las Piñas at around 6 p.m. after the PDEA agents enforced a search warrant issued by Judge Fernando Sagun of the Quezon City Regional Trial Court Branch 98.

Around 49 kilos of shabu, placed inside pails, 298 kilos of suspected liquid methamphetamine and laboratory equipment were seized inside the house.

Newly appointed PDEA chief Isidro Lapeña joined the operation in Las Piñas.

After the successful operation, PDEA agents also dismantled a shabu storage facility located at BF Homes, Parañaque City at around 7:30 p.m.

Lin was arrested inside the warehouse where 10 kilos of suspected shabu and around 200 kilos of suspected ephedrine were found.

Villanueva said ephedrine, an ingredient in the making of shabu, was stored in Parañaque and brought to the house in Las Piñas for processing into shabu crystals.

The manufactured drugs would then be brought to the Parañaque warehouse for storage before distribution to dealers in Metro Manila and Central Luzon, he added.

Villanueva said PDEA agents conducted surveillance operations in the area for about a month before the raid.

Investigators said a Taiwanese family has been renting the house in Las Piñas.
