A total of P5.9 million worth of illegal drugs were seized from a drug courier during a buy-bust operation at A. Lopez Street, Barangay Labangon in Cebu City on Saturday afternoon.

Authorities nabbed Eduardo Amancio Luzon, 18, who said that he and his brother were asked to simply fetch a paper bag, not knowing the contents.

His brother was able to evade arrest during the operation.

Luzon said they were promised P3,000 as an early Christmas gift from a certain “Wingwing” who told them about the paper bag.

Recovered from the suspect were three large packs of suspected “shabu,” a digital weighing scale, a cellphone and P4 million “budol” money.

Police Inspector Ian Macatangay said they are still doing follow-up operations to get hold of “Sinid,” the real target of the operation, as well as the target’s sources of illegal drugs.
