Three sachets of methamphetamine hydrochloride or shabu with a street value of P2,720 were seized from the two men.

Fifteen sachets said to contain “kush” or high-grade marijuana with a street value of around P105,000 were seized from them.

In Caloocan, Jon Carlo Gutierrez, 18, and Edelberto Enriquez were arrested for allegedly smoking marijuana in Bagong Silang, Caloocan City before dawn yesterday.

The two men were caught during a surveillance operation for fugitives. Police officers seized 33 sachets of marijuana with a street value of P25,000 and an improvised firearm from the suspects.
