COTABATO CITY - A recidivist illegal drug offender was again arrested after selling Shabu to a PDEA agent who posed as a poseur buyer during a buy-bust operation in the vicinity of Barangay Poblacion Bongao, Tawitawi, on May 10, 2024.

Seized and recovered pieces of evidence were one piece of heat-sealed transparent plastic sachet of methamphetamine hydrochloride, or Shabu, weighing MOL 50 grams with a standard drug price of ₱340,000.00, buy-bust money, and custody released order.
