MANILA- A couple was arrested in Bacoor City, Cavite on Friday for selling drugs hidden in gum wrappers.

Jose Mahadi Dellosde and Rose Ruth Moran were arrested from their home in Barangay Habay 1. 

“Tinatanggal ang wrapper at doon pinapasok ang shabu...Pag nilalako nila, parang ordinaryong chewing gum,” said Police Lt. Col. Vicente Cabatingan.

(They put the drugs in gum wrappers and peddle it like ordinary chewing gum.)

Police seized nearly P5,000 worth of "shabu" from the suspects who admitted that they sell the drugs for extra income.

“Pedicab [driver ako], magkano lang ba income niyan? Kumbaga extra income lang,” Dellosde said.

(I'm a pedicab driver and I only earn little. It's for extra income.)

The suspects were detained at the Bacoor City Police Custodial Center.
