They are believed to be drug pushers operating in Cubao, Quezon City.
A poseur buyer had been able to purchase shabu worth P3,500 from Martin, who was arrested after the deal.
Police recovered from the suspect’s pocket six heat-sealed plastic sachets of shabu, the P3,500 buy-bust money, one aluminum foil and four cellphones.
During investigation, Martin said Abraham was the source of his illegal drugs.
Subsequently, the police went to Martin’s house on No. 67 Cambridge Street and busted Abraham through an undercover agent.
Abraham was arrested after the drug transaction.
Confiscated from him were five heat-sealed plastic sachets of shabu, P1,000 buy-bust money, one cellphone and one Suzuki motorcycle.
Martin and Abraham were referred for inquest proceedings for violations of Section 5 (Selling) and Section 11 (Possession of Dangerous Drugs) of Republic Act 9165 (Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002). JING VILLAMENTE
