Around P525,000 worth of illegal drugs and firearms were seized in a drug bust operation in Barangay 31, Bacolod City on Thursday.
PDEA-6 Regional Director Wardley Getalla said their operatives were able to buy an estimated 25 grams of suspected shabu worth P25,000 from Nassir Mariga.
Another 100 grams of suspected shabu worth P500,000 were seized from Mariga's home, along with a shotgun, a KG-9 submachine gun, and ammunition.
Getalla said they have been monitoring Mariga, whose supply reportedly comes from Mindanao and Cebu.
Mariga denied allegations against him and said he only sells DVDs in the city.
He added that he is from Marawi City and has been living in Bacolod for six years now.
