Shabu recovered in Bohol and estimated to be worth a total of P7.3 million will be destroyed next month through incineration in Cebu along with other confiscated illegal drugs in the region.
Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) Bohol information officer Leia Alcantara said the illegal drugs which weighed 1,07 1grams were turned over to them by the Bohol Police Provincial Forensic Unit last week.
According to Alcantara, the illegal-drug haul was an aggregate of shabu collected by the police from 2,000 to 2021.
These were drugs which were not linked to any cases filed in court.
“No cases filed ni sila or no arrest involved ani na mga drugs. Or pwede pud napatay ang suspect, ang uban gi turnover lang, or uban confiscation na walay personality,” said Alcantara.
Also turned over to the PDEA were 788 grams of marijuana leaves which were estimated to be worth P94,662.
In 2021, the PDEA destroyed P25 million worth of shabu seized in Bohol.
The illegal drugs were transported to Cebu City from Bohol and were burned at a crematorium.
The four kilos of shabu were seized from at least 30 individuals who were arrested in Bohol from 2015 to 2018 and whose cases were already resolved. (AD)
