PDEA Central Luzon: P3M worth of ketamine seized from Taiwanese
Anti-drug authorities confiscated on Tuesday about P3 million worth of ketamine from a Taiwanese national in a controlled delivery operation.
According to a report of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency-Central Luzon (PDEA-3), the suspect was identified as Chang Bin Yen, 33, and a resident of Tainan, Taiwan.
The package containing ketamine was declared as an air purifier, and arrived at the Bureau of Customs-Port of Clark last May 12.
“Ketamine is a dangerous drug classified as a hallucinogenic drug. It can sedate, incapacitate, and cause short-term memory loss, and because of this, some people use it as a date-rape drug,” the PDEA-3 said in its report.
During the operation, the anti-drug agents confiscated two boxes concealed therein six pieces of stainless steel water purifier containing 600 grams of ketamine.
The controlled delivery operation was jointly conducted by PDEA-Central Luzon, Bureau of Customs- Port of Clark, Southern Police District, and Makati City Police.
