The National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) reported the seizure of P3.031 million worth of illegal drugs in a joint operation in Baguio City on August 12, 2021.
The controlled delivery operation resulted in the arrest of an individual identified as Elisa Aguirre Millare.
According to NBI Officer-in-Charge (OIC) Director Eric Distor, the operation stemmed from the interception of a parcel by the Bureau of Customs (BOC) at Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA).
The said parcel was declared as bed sheets and shoes but upon inspection the parcel in fact contains 1,783 tablets of “ecstasy” or party drugs with an estimated street value of more than P1.3 million which was shipped by Fostina Obobo of Neuss, Germany and consigned to Joyce Annsan Antono of Baguio City.
NBI agents, together with members of the NAIA Inter-Agency Drug Interdiction Task Group (IADITG), proceeded to Baguio City for a controlled delivery operation.
On August 11, 2021, the consignee was supposed to claim the subject parcel from Baguio Post Office but she didn’t arrive. Instead, she gave information that she would claim the said parcel at her residence in Bristle Ridge Residences.
Millare was arrested in front of Bristle Ridge Condominium in the act of handing down the parcel.
She was presented for inquest proceedings before the Office of the Prosecutor, Baguio City for violation of Section 4 (Importation of Dangerous Drugs) of R.A. 9165.
In addition, the consignee, Joyce Annsan Antono a.k.a Joyce Ann San Antonio (at-large) was also included in the charge.
