Authorities confiscated some P 17.2 million worth of suspected crystal meth or “shabu” from an African national in General Trias, Cavite, Saturday morning.

Anti-narcotics operatives conducted the buy-bust at Palmdale Village in Governor’s Hill, past 9a.m. 

Authorities apprehended the suspect after he sold 500 grams of suspected shabu to a poseur buyer. 

A kilo of “brownish granules substance” and a kilo of “brownish powdered substance” both believed to be shabu were also found in his possession.
Authorities estimated the alleged illegal drugs to weigh about 2.5kg and have a market value of about P 17,250,000.

The suspect will face drug charges.
