The suspects were identified as Taib Paidlac Suriong III and Maurica Nadal de Padua. They presented the identification cards of a certain Raymond Cruz Miranda and Leonel Adriano Romero in claiming the packages.

In a statement, BoC Commissioner Isidro Lapeña said the arrest of the suspects and seizure of the illegal drugs resulted from the controlled delivery of the packages to the consignees.

“Two shipments from United States arrived on Jan. 23 through a courier at the BoC-Clark and were held immediately after receiving a tip from PDEA that it will be subject of controlled delivery to the consignees,” he said.
