Upon arrest, police allegedly confiscated from Alba 50 more grams of shabu which were estimated to be worth P340,000.
Alba was placed under police custody pending the filing of charges against her.
She will be facing charges for sale and possession of illegal drugs in violation of the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002.
