BY SHIELA GELERA
About P700,000 worth of suspected shabu inserted in an electric stove, and sent through courier service, was seized from a man and his companion, at the downtown area of Bacolod City, at about 10:45 a.m. yesterday.
The suspects, identified as Rey Steve Esteban, 46, of Barangay Mandalagan in Bacolod and Randolf San Luis, 34, of Bago City in Negros Occidental, were arrested by the City Anti-Illegal Drugs Special Operations Task Group operatives, its chief Senior Insp. Jose Mulleta, said.
Esteban and San Luis allegedly threw away a package containing suspected shabu, and tried to escape in a black Chevrolet Spark car after sensing that the person to whom the former had handed a sachet of suspected shabu through the window, was a policeman, Mulleta said.
