Chinese national bound for Masbate nabbed for possessing drug manufacture items

A Chinese national who had been intending to go to Masbate was captured in Quezon City after authorities found in his possession glass equipment that are commonly used in the production of prohibited drugs.

The suspect was identified as Zhang Youhou, 46 years old.

Youhou was arrested in the Araneta Bus Terminal in Cubao last Friday at around 3 PM, according to Senior Inspector Roberto Razon of the city's Anti-Illegal Drugs Special Operations Task Group.

The suspect was barred from boarding a Roro bus when security personnel found the suspicious equipment during inspection.

It will be recalled that a few weeks ago, 32 boxes of chemicals believed to be for shabu manufacture were also found in an Isarog bus that was bound for Masbate.

The contents of the box were declared to be used clothing, but inspection revealed that they were full of drug lab chemicals.

Said chemicals were discovered when passengers complained of a foul stench that had been emanating from the boxes.
