A Chinese was arrested by the Quezon City Police District (QCPD) through its District Anti-Illegal Drugs-Special Operations Group (DAID-SOTG) and seized from him P16 million worth of suspected shabu during a buy-bust last Sunday night.
QCPD Director Chief Supt. Joel Pagdilao identified the suspect as Qiu Yuquian alias Qui, 42, , married, businessman, native of Fujian, China, and residing at 469 Juan Luna Street, Tondo, Manila.
The DAID-SOTG head, Chief Insp. Robert Razon, said at about 10:55 p.m. of May 3, police operatives conducted the buy-bust in front of a house along Kamias Road near Barangay East Kamias, Quezon City.
Yuquian was arrested through the help of a confidential
A policeman acted as poseur-buyer and bought from Yuquian P1 million worth of shabu using ten pieces of genuine one thousand pesos incorporated with 990 pieces of boodle money representing the amount of one million pesos.
Police discovered inside the suspect’s Toyota Camry three big Ziploc transparent plastic bags containing approximately three kilos of dangerous drugs suspected to be shabu.
The suspect will be charged under Section 5 and Section 11 Article 2 of Republic Act 9165.
Razon said the confiscated illegal drugs have a street value of P16 million.
Pagdilao said the arrest of the suspect is an offshoot of a previous arrest by the same anti-drug unit in another buy-bust that resulted in the arrest of a couple including their minor children a few weeks ago.
He commended the DAID-SOTG operatives for another successful anti-illegal drugs operation that resulted in the arrest of Yuquian.
Pagdilao said the arrest of the suspect is part of the QCPD’s continuous crime reduction program particularly with the implementation of “Oplan Lambat Sibat” as ordered by Interior Secretary Manuel Roxas 2nd and Quezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista and through the support of the Quezon City Anti-Drug Abuse Advisory Council headed by Vice Mayor Joy Belmonte.
