The raiding team confiscated P180,000 worth of suspected shabu, packed in one big and one medium-sizes heat-sealed transparent plastic sachets and illegal drug paraphernalia.
Ajero, on the other hand, was also nabbed through a search warrant preceded by a buy-bust operation around 3:30 a.m. Saturday in Martinez Street, Barangay Central, Dipolog City.
