Authorities seized an estimated P2.2 million worth of illegal drugs from two suspects in separate drug busts in Cebu City Tuesday night.

The suspects were identified by police as Carlota Alonzo aka "Lota" and Ozner Nabua.

Alonzo, who was nabbed in Barangay Tejero, is believed to be connected with slain drug lord Rowen Secretaria.

Meanwhile, Nabua is believed to have illegal connections inside the Cebu City Jail.

"Both of them are high value targets of CCPO (Cebu City Police Office) and included in the drugs watchlist. Their area of distribution, we gathered, are within barangays of Cebu City,” Police Senior Inspector Narrolf Tan, team leader of the Cebu City Intelligence Branch, said.

Both denied the allegations and said the confiscated drugs did not come from them.

Law enforcers are still checking intelligence reports that the supply of shabu came from Northern Cebu.
