BOC, PDEA agents nab marijuana ‘consignee’

Combined elements of the Bureau of Customs and the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency arrested a consignee of a controlled delivery package that contained dried marijuana leaves, rolling papers, and smoking pipe which arrived at the Port of Clark, Pampanga.

The claimant of the package was arrested at Majayjay, Laguna by BOC and PDFEAZ agents who followed the consignee after claiming the shipment found to contain 4.5 grams of Kush Marijuana and 82 leaves of rolling papers.

 “The subject shipment said to contain “Gifts, Letters and Photos” from Germany arrived on June 25, 2020 and was subjected to strict profiling and non-intrusive examination,” the BOC said.

“The shipment was likewise subjected to K9 sniffing which indicated presence of illegal drugs. Thereafter, PDEA chemical analysis was conducted which yielded positive result for presence of Marijuana,” BOC commissioner Rey Leonardo Guerrero said.
