            Three Taiwanese were arrested by the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) in Ayala Alabang Subdivision in Muntinlupa City in a conducted raid yesterday.

            Almost 55 kilos of methamphetamine hydrochloride also known as shabu and other materials used for manufacturing were seized by the police from three Taiwanese nationals, Peng Jyun Jiun, 19; Chen Hu Min, 27; and Eugene Chong, 24.

            The said shabu and materials has an estimated cost of 275-M.

            According to Director Joel Pagdilao, head of National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) as of now, the chemists of PDEA are still conducting investigation and currently trying to determine if the house is used as shabu laboratory.

            “The three Taiwanese appeared to be in a panic because of the seizure of the raw materials shipment. They were dispatching their supply of shabu in a hurry and we were lucky to catch them in the act,” Pagdilao added.

            Last Tuesday, the 50 kilos of shabu that were recovered on an abandoned van at a parking lot of a mall in Pasay City is supposed to be deliver in the suspects.
