Police scored anew in the hunt for “big-time runners” of illegal drugs, clinching a haul of shabu with estimated value of P177,000 in yesterday’s early morning raid in barangay Danao, Panglao.

However, Tecson saw the police team coming through the CCTV camera and managed to flee, leaving behind three companions.

The police team arrived at around 6:15 a.m. morning yesterday and proceeded with the raid based on a search warrant issued by Vice Executive Presiding Judge Leo Moises Lison of the Regional Trial Court-Branch 3 in Tagbilaran City.
