MABALACAT CITY, Pampanga – Police officers arrested three suspected drug traffickers classified as “high-value individuals” who allegedly netted “shabu” (methamphetamine) worth at least P3,343,000 in two separate operations against illegal drugs in Tarlac City.

In a statement released on Thursday, April 4, the Tarlac provincial police said the first buy-and-seize operation was carried out at 11:51 pm on Tuesday in the village of San Miguel.

Four plastic packages containing about 450 grams of shabu worth P3,060,000 were confiscated from the suspects.
