Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, August 10) — The Quezon City Police District (QCPD) seized ₱87.6 million worth of various suspected illegal drugs during a buy-bust operation in Quezon City early Wednesday.

The police initially pegged the amount at ₱43.5 million, but later corrected it to ₱87,609,800 based on the standard prices of illegal drugs.

Suspected shabu, dried marijuana, kush, cocaine, and ecstasy were confiscated from suspects 25-year-old Riza Bilbao and 26-year-old Alvin Rapinian Esteban at 2:30 a.m. in Brgy. San Roque, Quezon City, according to the National Capital Region Police Office.
