National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) Director Guillermo Eleazar identified the suspects as Mhar Vincent Ramos, 22, and Jeff Colorado, 20, both former business students.

Recovered from the suspects were 168 grams of high-grade marijuana or “kush” with an esti­mated street value of P252,000 and 7.8 kilos of marijuana dried leaves with an estimated street value of P930,000.
