RIZAL, Philippines – Operatives of the Rizal Provincial Police Office arrested a suspected drug courier in a buy-bust operation along C6 Road in Barangay Sta. Ana, Lupang Arenda in Taytay, Rizal Tuesday night, May 22.
The female suspect was identified as Marlyn Datalio, 40, a resident of Lower Bicutan in Taguig City.
A police asset tracked Datalio when she got off a white taxicab and transferred to a white SUV which served as the suspect’s delivery vehicle to the site where a poseur buyer and other cops were waiting.
Police recovered from the suspect 100 grams of suspected shabu valued at P680,000.
Datalio denied allegations and claimed someone ordered her to do the transaction.
PRO-4A Regional Director Chief Supt. Guillermo Eleazar said Datalio was previously detained in Pasig City for drug peddling but was out on bail.
“Ang transakyon niya hindi maliitan…Sinasabi na siya’y ginagamit lang as a courier,” Eleazar said.

“Itong mga Muslim dito sa area ng Taguig doon siya kumukuha ng supply para i-distribute doon sa kaniyang pinagdadalhan sa Metro Manila at Rizal Province,” he added.
