More than half a million pesos worth of illegal drugs were seized by the Philippine National Police's Cebu Intelligence Branch Monday (CIB) from 50-year-old Ricardo Cabanes in Barangay Pasil, Cebu City, Monday afternoon.

Confiscated from his possession were nine sachets of suspected shabu. 

According to CIB head Chief Inspector Christopher Navida, Cabanes was about to deliver the nine sachets of suspected illegal drugs to someone when the police officers arrested him. 

Navida said Cabanes was on their list of "one-time big-time" operations.

Cabanes admitted that he owns the illegal drugs. 

He added that he got his supply of illegal drugs from the Talisay City Jail.
