According to the PNP, seized from Hamza Dilabayan in the operation in Barangay Campong-Talao were two grams of shabu worth P13600.
The PNP did not give additional details about the buy-bust operation.

The PNP said criminal charges will be filed against the suspect.
“We appeal to the parents and to the guardians to guide their children carefully so that they will not be influenced to join criminal activities,” Danao added.
