Authorities seized eight kilos of shabu worth P54.4 million from an Indonesian passenger at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Monday morning.

NAIA customs district collector Carmelita Talusan identified the foreigner as Agnes Alexandra who arrived at 2 a.m. from Siem Reap, Cambodia, aboard Cebu Pacific flight 5J 528.

The illegal drug was detected when the alien’s luggage was x-rayed by Customs Inspection Project personnel upon arrival at the airport.
