The Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) said authorities confiscated 15 kilos of suspected shabu and arrested a Chinese national, who is allegedly a member of a drug syndicate, in a buy-bust operation at the Quezon City Memorial Circle (QCMC).

PDEA-National Capital Region director Joel Plaza identified the suspect as Hongbo He, 45, a businessman and resident of Mariveles, Bataan, who was arrested by joint operatives of PDEA NCR and the Quezon City Police District (QCPD) Station 10 at the park's parking area around 7:45 p.m. Tuesday.

The suspect yielded 15 pieces of transparent plastic packs weighing more or less 15 kilograms of suspected shabu with a standard drug price of PHP102 million, a cargo van vehicle, and the buy-bust money.

According to Plaza, the suspect has been under surveillance for almost three weeks when authorities received information that the Chinese national, who appears to be a member of a Chinese international drug syndicate, is involved in the illegal sale and distribution of dangerous drugs in the NCR.

The suspect is facing criminal charges for violation of Section 5 (sale of dangerous drugs) and Section 11 (illegal possession of dangerous drugs) of Article II of the R.A. 9165 otherwise known as "The Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002".
