AUTHORITIES seized more than P.3 million worth of shabu from three suspected drug suppliers, including a woman, in a buy-bust operation Tuesday evening in Paranaque City.
Paranaque police chief P/Col. Robin King Sarmiento said the arrest of Menandro Richardson, 40, Jaren Guenthoer, 23 and Ryza Gesate, 33, all residents of Silverio Compound, Brgy. San Isidro was the result of more than a week of surveillance operation conducted by elements of Station Drug Enforcement Unit (SDEU) led by P/Maj. Anthony Alising against the suspects.
At around 11:30 p.m., an undercover cop who posed as buyer was able to buy a plastic sachet of shabu worth P300 from the suspects along Silverio Compound, Purok 5, Brgy. San Isidro.
When Richardson, along with his cohorts, handed the plastic sachet of shabu in exchanged for P300 marked money, operatives of SDEU immediately pounced on them.
The suspects yielded a total of more or less 58 grams of shabu with standard drug price worth P394,400 and the marked money when frisked.
