BoC-NAIA intercepts party drugs anew

THE Bureau of  Customs (BoC) at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) intercepted anew another parcel of party drugs from the Netherlands.
Port of NAIA officials said the parcel of 196 pieces of dark gray oval-shaped ecstasy were discovered at the Central Mail Exchange Center. The same package also yielded 151 grams of MDMA powder/crystal (raw ecstasy).
According to Port of NAIA district collector Mimel Talusan, the drugs sent by Jansen J.J.K. from Amersfoort, Netherlands, were declared as key chains and were intended for a resident of Cebu City.
The authorities said the illegal drugs had an aggregate street value of P750,000.
Philippine Drugs Enforcement Agency (PDEA) chemical laboratory results confirmed that the tablets and the crystallized substance contained MDMA or ecstacy/molly.
The illegal drugs are now in the custody of PDEA.
Talusan said since January this year, the Customs-NAIA, in partnership with PDEA and other government agencies, intercepted 41 different shipments of illegal drugs. Thirteen of these shipments are ecstasy.
