MANILA – Agents of the Philippine National Police-Drug Enforcement Group (PDEG) arrested three drug suspects during a sting operation in Las Piñas City on Saturday, leading to the confiscation of over PHP3 million worth of suspected shabu.

PDEG chief Brig. Gen. Eleazar Matta said the suspects aged 58, 48 and 47 were arrested during a buy-bust in Barangay Pulang Lupa 1.

Seized from the suspects were 450 grams of suspected shabu with an estimated standard value worth PHP3,060,000.
