According to SPD Director Tomas Apolinario, two suspects identified as Angelo Echaluce, 19 and Ma. Rosario Echaluce, 38 were arrested.
"Ito ay buy-bust operation. Sinubaybayan ito ng DAID (District Anti-Illegal Drugs) ng SPD at ito nga na-monitor namin. May magdadala papuntang Cebu kaya nag-conduct kami ng buy-bustoperation," said Apolinario.
Philippine National Police (PNP) Chief Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa said the older Echaluce are connected to a drug syndicate which operates from the New Bilibid Prison maximum security compound.
"'Yung babae may ka-live in nasa maximum security compound sa Bilibid, 'yun ang contact sa Chinese sa Hong Kong. May tinatawagan na Instik sa Pampanga at 'yun ang nagpapadeliver dito," he said.
The two suspects claimed that the illegal drugs are intended for the Cebu.
According to PNP, they are yet to identify if the suspects have a link to Visayas bigtime drug lordsFranz Sabalones and Kerwin Espinosa.
