Anti-narcotics agents nabbed five suspected big-time illegal drug traffickers on Monday, September 26, and seized over P12.7 million worth of shabu (crystal meth) in separate buy-bust operations in Cavite and Rizal provinces.

The Police Regional Office 4A (PRO-4A) in a report Tuesday morning said anti-illegal drugs operatives collared siblings Diadema and Betty Babasa at around 7:12 p.m. after they allegedly sold P3,000 worth of shabu to a poseur buyer in Barangay Gulod Malaya in San Mateo, Rizal.

Seized from the suspects were a weighing scale, one big plastic sachet, and eight small sachets of shabu containing shabu weighing 1.026 kilograms with estimated Dangerous Drugs Board value of P6, 979,520.

The report tagged Diadema as included on the drug watch list as an “HVI” or high-value individual in the local drug scene.

Brigadier General Jose Melencio Nartatez, Jr., PRO-4A chief, ordered an in-depth investigation into the possible involvement of the previously arrested drug personality, Joana Babasa, and her two cohorts, also in San Mateo on September 24.

The police seized P1.6 million worth of meth from the three suspects.

“Malaki ang posibilidad na magkakasama ang mga nahuling drug personalities na ito na siyang nag-ooperate sa San Mateo Rizal,” Nartatez said.

The police said the three suspects were included on the drug watch list as “HVI”.

The police were conducting further investigations to determine the source of the illegal drugs seized from the five suspects.

Nartatez commended the operatives involved in the successful drug busts.

“I am very elated by the accomplishments by operatives of PRO-Calabarzon for a job well done, you made us proud. Your triumph against these high value individuals can save many innocent lives. This accomplishment proves us that if we diligently performed our mandated tasks to enforce the law, we can achieve greater heights in our profession,” Nartatez said.

All suspects are under police custody and face charges of violating the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002.
