PAGADIAN CITY, Zamboanga del Sur – The police have intercepted a shipment of shabu and arrested the suspected drug courier Friday evening in the municipality of Molave, this province.

He said the 100 sachets of shabu was placed in a big square-shape heat-sealed sachet wrapped with table napkin.
He said the suspect revealed during the investigation that the she was only ordered by certain Cathy Rubio to deliver the said package to a certain John Mark in the municipality of Molave.
He said charges for violation of Section 5 of Republic Act 9165 otherwise known as the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002 will be filed against the suspect. (PNA)
