Php4.6-M marijuana seized




ANTI-NARCOTICS operatives seized 35 kilos of marijuana worth Php4.6 million from six suspects during a buy-bust operation in Cubao, Quezon City, Monday night.

Police identified the suspects as Grenie Hierro, 34; Anthony John Timpug, 39; Lassery Ann Royo, 30; Randbel Clifford Venzon, 20; and Archie Visperas, 22; while a 16-year-old male was rescued during the operation.

The buy-bust operation was conducted by the Drugs Enforce­ment Unit of Cubao Police Station 7 and Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency around 8 p.m. Monday at Room No. 25, Mary Grace Haven Apartment on Denver Street in Barangay Immaculate Conception in Quezon City.

Seized from the suspects were 27 large rolls of marijuana leaves, seven large bricks of marijuana, a plastic bag containing marijuana, several drug paraphernalia, cel­lular phones and the buy-bust money.

The suspect told police that the marijuana came from the prov­inces of Kalinga and Apayao.

Authorities placed the suspects under surveillance after they re­ceived a report from a concerned citizen about the illegal drug activi­ties of the suspects in the area.
