Runaway dealer leaves P3.4M worth shabu behind

COTABATO CITY --- State agents seized P3.4 million worth of shabu from a trafficker they tried but failed to entrap in Talayan, Maguindanao Wednesday.

Santokan Mantikayan managed to run away fast when he noticed he was to sell half a kilo of shabu to non-uniformed agents of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency-Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao.

Juvenal Azurin, director of PDEA-BARMM, said Thursday there is a possibility that Mantikayan was hidden from pursuing agents by “sympathizers” in the village where the bungled sting was laid.
