BIGGEST SHABU HAUL —  The seizure of P575 kilos of shabu worth P4 billion from a Chinese national inside a rented apartment in Irisan, Baguio City on March 29 by composite government forces is the biggest illegal drug haul in a single operation in the Cordillera in decades. Interior and Local Government Sec. Benjamin “Benhur” Abalos Jr., ranking law enforcement and anti-narcotics officers, and Mayor Benjamin Magalong visited the site to witness the inventory of the contraband. — Ofelia C. Empian
