More than 3,000 tablets of the party drug Ecstasy valued at P5.1 million have been confiscated by the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) from two suspects in Quezon City.

PDEA operatives, in coordination with the Quezon City police and Bureau of Customs, intercepted on Thursday a package from the Netherlands that passed through Shenzen City in China after Chinese authorities tipped them off.

The PDEA said the parcel containing 3,034 Ecstasy pills, which were declared as solar lights, were seized at the Port of Clark in Pampanga.

PDEA agents hatched an entrapment operation against the parcel’s consignee, Jennica Abas, in Tandang Sora, Quezon City on Saturday night.

Abas was apprehended after transacting with police who posed as employees of a courier company.

The suspect’s cohort, Genevie Abas, was also arrested.

Charges of drug trafficking and importation will be filed against the suspects before the Quezon City Prosecutor’s Office, police said.
