MANILA - Authorities on Friday discovered illegal drugs estimated to be worth millions in a house in San Juan, Metro Manila.
According to the NBI, they found 100 bags of methamphetamine, locally known as shabu, in the house. The bags contained 10 kilograms each. They also found the drug in liquid form in a truck on the premises.
“The tenant said he was Chinese. He kept saying hindi raw siya ang may-ari ng bahay, wala raw siyang alam,” said Avery Go, head of the homeowners’ association in the neighborhood which includes Mangga Street.
“As far as peace and security are concerned, mabait sila…nobody knew they were involved [in illegal drugs].
They seemed like model neighbors,” he said. As they have no control over what happens in homes in their neighborhood, Go said, the least they could do in the future is tell lot owners in their neighborhood to be responsible for the tenants that they bring in.
Another nearby house was previously raided by authorities, Go said, for illegal drugs.
The authorities are continuing to catalog the contents of the house in San Juan, and are pending investigation of the case.
