A lady drug courier yielded about P3 million worth of shabu during a buy-bust operation conducted by anti-narcotics operatives of the National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) at the parking lot of a mall in Parañaque City, Thursday afternoon.
Agents of NCRPO’s Regional Drug Enforcement Unit (RDEU) conducted an entrapment operation against the suspect, Jeah Gicoso, at about 5 p.m. in Barangay San Dionisio, Parañaque City.
A policeman on board a Honda Civic acted as poseur buyer and was able to buy one half a kilo of shabu from the suspect.
According to NCRPO director Chief Supt. Guilermo Eleazar, the suspect was placed under surveillance after receiving information that she was being used as a drug courier by syndicates operating in Metro Manila and Calabarzon.
During investigation, the suspect claimed that she was only forced to become a drug courier of a syndicate to earn money. She said she is being paid P10,000 for every transaction.
