LUCBAN, Quezon – Police operatives on Wednesday arrested two suspected drug “pushers” following the seizure of P600,000 worth of illegal drugs and a rifle at Sitio Ilaya, Barangay Manasa, here.

Quezon Police Director Col. Ledon Monte said the two suspects were caught with shabu when collared by joint elements of the Provincial Drug Enforcement Unit (PDEU) headed by Major Mendel Casao and Lucban Police Station under Capt. Arjon Oxina.

Monte said the arrest yielded 30.22 grams of shabu with a street value of P616,488 and an unregistered Colt AR-15 Cal.9mm rifle, and three marked P1,000 bills.
