City police chief, Lt. Col. Romulo Albacea said May Morales, 32 and Rommel Lancion, 42, residents of said village, were caught with suspected shabu and marked money during a buy- bust at around 8 a.m.

Albacea said the operation conducted by elements of the Provincial Intellignce Unit under Major Gaylor Pagala yielded heat-sealed transparent plastic sachets containing 14.25 grams of suspected shabu with a street value of P290,700, a small pouch bag and a marked P500 bill.
