A shipment containing a kilo of shabu worth P5 million was intercepted at the Federal Express Warehouse in Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA), the Bureau of Customs (BOC) said Friday.
Maj. Jaybee Raul Cometa of the X-ray Inspection Project (XIP) said the shipment was declared as a guitar amplifier however further inspection showed that it contained illegal drugs.
The shipment was intercepted in July after it displayed irregularity in the X-ray monitor of the FedEx warehouse, Cometa said.
BOC examiners on duty immediately conducted the physical examination of the shipment in the presence of agents from the Customs Anti-Illegal Drug Task Force (CAIDTF) and the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA)-NAIA.
Cometa disclosed that the shipment was to be exported by a certain Che Che Cruz of Philippine Electronics, New Zaniga, Mandaluyong. It was consigned to a certain Jerry Yu allegedly from Shenton Avenue, Banktown, Sydney, Australia.
The illegal drugs was concealed in a plastic wrapper containing the white crystalline substance.
It was already turned over to the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency Wednesday for proper disposal.
A parallel investigation is being conducted by the BOC-Anti-illegal drugs task force and the PDEA to arrest the drug suspects, according to BOC.
