Police in Batangas have arrested one man and seized P680,000 worth of suspected illegal drugs during a recent buy-bust operation.

The Police Region 4A Office identified the suspect as John Christopher Oliver Abulencia, a 34 year old tricycle driver who resides in San Pedro, Laguna.

Confiscated from Abulencia were illegal drugs weighing 100 grams, two plastic sachets suspected to contain shabu, and buy-bust money worth P200,000.

Criminal complaints will be filed against the suspect, police said.

PNP Region 4A Director Brig. Gen. Antonio Yarra praised the personnel of the Batangas Provincial Drug Enforcement Unit and Batangas City Police Station that conducted the operation.

Yarra also warned drug peddlers that the police would continue to go after them.

“Pinupuri ko ang ating mga operatiba sa kanilng pagsusumikap para mapigilan ang mga indibidwal na ito sa pagpapakalat ng ipinagbabawal na droga. At sa mga magtatangkang magpuslit nito ay hindi namin kayo tatantanan. Muli, kami ay nakikiusap sa ating mga kababayan na hwag po kayong mag atubili na magreport sa inyong kapulisan, magtulungan po tayo upang tuluyan ng matuldukan ang problema sa iligel na droga,” Yarra said.
