PNP-AVSEGROUP nabs american for a stick of marijuana


Authorities from the Philippine National Police- Aviation Security Group (PNP-ASG) arrested an American national departing for Bicol after a stick of marijuana was found in his luggage.

The said American identified as Christopher Hill was travelling with his Filipina mother and they were about to board their flight to Nagat at the NAIA terminal at around 7 a.m. when the screeners from the Office of Transportation Security manning the x-ray machine saw a stick of marijuana inside Hill’s luggage as it passed through the final security check.

The OTS personnel informed the PNP-ASG regarding the marijuana found in the luggage.

Hill’s mother explained that her son uses marijuana for his ailment and that they did not know it was illegal in the Philippines since marijuana is legal in the country where they came from as an alternative medicine.

Hill was brought to the PNP aviation substation for further investigation.
