Government forces seized an estimated Php3.4-million worth of shabu in a buy-bust operation in Cotabato on July 6.
The buy-bust yielded to the arrest of Nards Udto Adtis at Purok Masagana in Barangay South Manuangan at Pigcawayan town 6:15pm on Saturday.
Troops further seized from Adtis boodle money worth Php750,000.
Composite elements of 34th Infantry Battalion, Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency Region 12 and BARMM, and Pigcawayan Municipal Police Station launched the buy-bust against Adtis and a certain Kamid, who remains at large today.
Adtis and the items seized are currently in the custody of PDEA 12.
Lieutenant General Cirilito Sobejana, commander of Western Mindanao Command, said, “Rest assured of our continuous cooperation with law enforcement agencies to end illegal drug operations in western and central areas.”
“The military is committed in supporting all legal mechanisms to end the prevalence of illegal drugs in the country,” he added.
