CITY OF SAN FERNANDO, Philippines—The police in Pampanga on Friday seized some 36.5 kilograms of shabu (metamphetamine hydrochloride) worth P182 million from a Chinese who lived and conducted his trade in an upscale village in nearby Mexico town.

Supt. Raymund Louie Baloyo, head of the provincial anti-illegal drugs operation task force, said around 16.5 kg of shabu were stacked in a luggage while another 20 kg were stored in a box in a house on Lakeshore.

Ding Wenkun, 30, was arrested together with his aide, Roel Cabag, during a buy bust past 5 p.m.

The suspect, from Jiangxi province, entered the Philippines last Oct. 29.

Both are held at the Pampanga police camp in this capital as charges are being prepared against them, Senior Supt. Oscar Albayalde, provincial police director, said.

“The intensified campaign against illegal drugs in Pampanga is upon the guidance of Chief Supt. Raul Petrasanta,” Albayalde said.
