A 23-YEAR-OLD Lalamove rider was arrested after he tried to sneak more than P.1 million worth of shabu concealed in beef caldereta and chicken head adobo inside the Taguig City Jail Male Dormitory at Camp Bagong Diwa, Taguig City.

Report reaching the office of Southern Police District (SPD) Director P/BGen. Jimili Macaraeg showed that at around 4:50 p.m. last Sunday, Angelo Quibilan of Calzada Tipas, Taguig City, visited a detainee at the Taguig City Jail Male Dormitory and had brought caldereta and chicken head adobo.

While inside the searching area, JO1 Erlyn Manganay noticed transparent plastic sachets hidden in the caldereta and when she searched further, more plastic sachets were found concealed in the chicken head adobo.

Macaraeg said a total of 38 pieces of plastic sachets containing shabu weighing more or less 16.4 grams with a value of P111,520.00 concealed in two food items were recovered by jail officers. He was later turned over to Taguig Police Sub-Station 10.

The suspect denied owning the recovered illegal drugs and told police that he was only tasked by a woman he failed to identify – to deliver the food to a detained person inside the Taguig City Jail Male Dormitory.
