Who says there are no illegal drugs in Camarines Sur?

Two brothers who are the sons of a retired police officer were arrested Sunday night(March 19) for carrying P5.6 million worth or “shabu.”

A Bicol Standard report Monday (March 20) identified the suspects as Macneil Abines and Christian Abines, who were described as “major drug dealers” in the province.

Sources said that their father, SPO2 Reinier Abines, is the bodyguard of a local politiko.

Elements of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) conducted the operation at Diaz St. corner Barlin, Barangay Del Rosario, Milaor which resulted to the capture of the duo and four other persons, namely Ivan Soreta, Bobby Piquit, Milan Cabase, and Benjamin Araojo.

Over a kilo of shabu was confiscated. It is said that after President Rodrigo Duterte launched his aggressive anti-narcotics campaign last year, the street value of illegal substances shot up due to scarcity.

The Abineses later admitted that they supplied illegal drugs to the towns of Minalabac, San Fernando, Pasacao, Pamplona, and Libmanan, among others.

PDEA conducted the operation by virtue of a search warrant issued by Executive Judge Pablo Formaran of the Naga City Regional Trial Court.
