Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) Director General Isidro S. Lapeña said that about 2.5 kilograms of suspected cocaine worth P12.5 million was discovered in two ceramic boxes inside a locker at a warehouse storage facility in Quezon City.

    Joint elements of PDEA Intelligence and Investigation Service (PDEA-IIS) under Director Randy Pedroso, PDEA Regional Office-National Capital Region (PDEA RO-NCR) under Director Wilkins Villanueva and PDEA-International Cooperation and Foreign Affairs Service (PDEA-ICFAS) under Director Juliet Orozco, discovered the abandoned cocaine at 5 p.m. on January 18 inside the locker on the 4th floor of a building along EDSA in Barangay Veterans Village, Quezon City. “Based on the information received from the Australian Federal Police, the storage locker is registered to a certain Corey Cornell Drew, an American citizen, whom they already arrested in Perth, Australia sometime in October 2016, for attempting to possess a marketable quantity of cocaine,” Lapeña said. Drew will be charged for violation of possession of dangerous drugs.
