MANILA, Philippines — At least P4 million worth of dried marijuana bricks and cannabis oil were seized from three drug suspects during a sting in Tarlac City yesterday morning.

Cornelio Chumil-ang, 33; Marcelino Caraowa, 40, and Jomar Pallar, 24, all of Mountain Province, were arrested after they allegedly tried to sell 42 marijuana bricks, two bottles of cannabis oil and 26 rolled marijuana sticks to undercover police officers in Barangay San Nicolas, Tarlac City.

Police also seized from the suspects phones and two vehicles used in transporting the marijuana.

Investigation showed the suspects belonged to the same group whose members were arrested for possession of the same items in Tarlac in February.

The suspects and the pieces of evidence were brought to Camp Gen. Macabulos in Tarlac City.
