LEGAZPI CITY --- Anti-narcotics operatives nabbed on Monday afternoon a suspected lady drug pusher and seized from her 500 grams of Shabu or crystal meth worth P3.4M in a buy-bust operation at the Legazpi Boulevard in Barangay Puro, this city, a top official of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) in Bicol said.
Arrested was Myla Panuncio, alias Myla, a resident of Pasay City and believed to be an illegal drug supplier operating in Bicol, according to Christian Frivaldo, PDEA regional director.
The suspect was nabbed by members of the PDEA Regional Special Enforcement Team following a drug buy-bust operation at about 3:30 p.m. Monday along the Legazpi City Boulevard where the suspect met with a PDEA agent posing as a buyer.
The suspect did not resist arrest while the anti-narcotics operatives seized from her possession one big heat-sealed plastic bag containing 500 grams of Shabu.
In a phone interview, Frivaldo when asked if the suspect was among the high-value targets (HVTs) under the PDEA watch list, said that so far her name was not included in the list. “We are looking deeper on her profile as a drug supplier whose operation involves roving from one place to another.”
