MANILA, Philippines - Authorities nabbed a notorious drug pushing couple in Daet, Camarines Norte last week.

The Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) identified the suspects as Modesta Villareal, 46, and her husband Rodel Villareal, 48, residents of Purok 7, Barangay Lag-on, Daet, Camarines Norte.

Modesta works as a government employee, while Rodel is a tricycle driver.

PDEA director general Arturo G. Cacdac, Jr. said the couple is included in the watch-listed drug personalities of Camarines Norte.

A search, warranted by Daet Regional Trial Court (RTC) judge Roberto Escaro, led to the discovery of P180,000 worth of shabu at the suspects’ residence and the couple’s arrest.

The suspects will be facing charges for violation of Section 11 (Possession of Dangerous Drugs) Article II of Republic Act 9165, or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002.
