Customs confiscates high-quality cannabis in Clark

Customs Seizes Over P805,200 Worth of Marijuana Disguised as “Replacement Filter” at Port of Clark

The Bureau of Customs (BOC) reported that a parcel containing over P805,200 worth of marijuana disguised as “replacement filter” was seized at the Port of Clark.

According to a statement from the BOC, the 488 grams of marijuana were discovered in the parcel after undergoing x-ray scanning and K9 sniffing. The results revealed dried leaves and fruiting tops suspected to be high-grade marijuana or kush.

Samples of the seized substance were turned over to the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency for laboratory testing, which confirmed the presence of marijuana. As a result, a warrant of seizure and detention was issued against the shipment.

District Collector Erastus Sandino B. Austria commended the personnel for seizing the illegal drugs, particularly during the holiday season. Customs Commissioner Bienvenido Y. Rubio reaffirmed the BOC’s commitment to its campaign against illegal drug smuggling, emphasizing their pledge to prevent smuggling and protect the country’s borders and citizens’ well-being from the dangers of illegal drugs.
