MANILA, Philippines — Twenty kilos of shabu with an estimated street value of P136 million were seized in a drug bust in Bacoor, Cavite yesterday.

Michelle Bardelosa, 39, and a 16-year-old boy were arrested by agents of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency in Barangay Molino at around 10 a.m. after selling a kilo of shabu to undercover agents, PDEA spokesman Derrick Carreon said.
