MANILA, Philippines — The Taytay Philippine National Police (PNP) has seized over P1 million worth of suspected illegal drugs during a buy-bust operation in Rizal.

Taytay PNP Chief of Police PLtCol. Rodel Ban-o reported that suspect, Gerlie Lasap, was arrested during an operation in Barangay Sta. Ana in Taytay, Rizal.

Authorities seized from Lasap around 200 grams of suspected illegal drugs, including P99,000 worth of fake money.

“Initially, based on our findings, she’s one of the main sources of the drug supply here in Taytay. A 200 to 500 grams per transaction is a huge supply already,” he said.

Ban-O also said Lasap also has dealings in Taguig City where illegal drugs are reportedly in short supply.

“This is an indicator po na kumakaunti po ang supply (that supply is dwindling),” he added.

Authorities are currently investigating where Lasap sourced her supplies and who her buyers are. AAC (with reports from Jennica Cruz)

MANILA, Philippines – The Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) and the Anti-Money Laundering Council (AMLC) have joined forces to effectively implement the forfeiture of laundered money alleged to be proceeds of illegal drug activities.

Under an agreement, PDEA shall refer to the AMLC drug-related cases for financial investigation, and if warranted, filing of cases involving freeze order, civil forfeiture, and money laundering, accompanied with specified case documents that are admissible in court.

PDEA Director General Wilkins Villanueva explained that their operations on freezing bank accounts of drug syndicates will be intensified under the memorandum.

Villanueva, however, refused to elaborate how they freeze bank accounts of suspected drug individuals.

“I assure everybody, ‘pag nanghuli kami ngayon, sigurado ‘pag nakakuha kami ng ebidensya, ide-derecho namin siya kung saan nila pinaglalalagay ang kanilang pera,” Villanueva said.

The PDEA Chief is also eyeing to use the money of drug syndicates in the agency’s rehabilitation programs.

“Magmo-motion tayo sa korte para iyong pera nila, magamit ng (Dangerous Drugs Board) at PDEA para sa anti-drug operation or rehabilitation. Igigisa natin sila sa sarili nilang mantika,” he said.

Villanueva added that they are still running after the Golden Triangle in Southeast Asia, which remains to be the main source of illegal drugs in the country. MNP (with reports from Lea Ylagan)
