P5.5-M shabu shipment seized at NAIA

March 10, 2017 – The Bureau of Customs (BOC) intercepted recently two shipments of methamphetamine hydrochloride, more popularly known as shabu, at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport.

Deputy Commissioner Ariel Nepomuceno of the BOC Enforcement Group said X-ray scanning revealed questionable images in the shipments valued at P5 million that had apparently been misdeclared.

The cargo seized on March 2, originally declared as boxes of wigs, turned out to contain 1.2 kilos of shabu. It was shipped from the Republic of Congo and was consigned to a certain Joseph Amistad in Talisay, Cebu province. The sender was identified as Mbiko Madama Aminata.

Previously, authorities seized on January 20 shabu packed in candy wrappers inside the DHL Warehouse Commodity, also at NAIA. The shipment was consigned to a certain Analyn Dionisio in Doha, Qatar from one Randy Olivares of Santa Cruz, Manila.

The BOC has since turned over the seized contraband to the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency. Charges were later filed against the perpetrators for violation of Republic Act No. 9165, or the Dangerous Drugs Act of 1972, and RA 10863, or the Customs Modernization and Tariff Act.

Customs Commissioner Nicanor Faeldon lauded the joint efforts of the BOC Enforcement Group, BOC-NAIA headed by District Collector Edgar Macabeo, and members of the NAIA Inter-Agency Drug Interdiction Task Group, including PDEA, PNP, and the NAIA-Airport Police, in catching the violators.#
