    Joint personnel of Marawi City Police Station and 500th Combat Engineer Battalion, 5th Engineer Brigade arrested 3 individuals and confiscated Php374,000 worth of Shabu during the conduct of Checkpoint Operation in Brgy Gadongan, Marawi City, Lanao del Sur on January 2, 2022.

    Confiscated items from the suspects during the said operation were two (2) heat sealed transparent plastic sachets containing “Shabu” with a total weight of 55 grams with estimated value of Php374,000, and one (1) Unit Caliber .45 pistol chamber loaded with 2 magazines and 7 live ammunition.

     Accordingly, the suspects were confronted for not wearing face masks during the checkpoint operation when the troops noticed a pistol tucked in the right waist of the driver that prompted them to conduct further investigation which resulted to the siezure of illegal drugs.
