Authorities have discovered a marijuana plantation reportedly run by two Chinese suspects in a four-story building in San Juan.

Joint operatives of the San Juan Police, Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) and the Eastern Police District swooped down Thursday night on a building in San Juan City and uncovered a marijuana plantation worth P1 million but failed to arrest two Chinese suspects who are reportedly behind the operations.

Police Captain Denis Tejda of San Juan police identified the suspects as a certain Aaron Huang and Ming Uy who reportedly owns the building. They evaded arrest during the raid.

Report from San Juan Police showed that authorities swooped down on the 4th floor and rooftop of  No. 34 Rita St. barangay Batis at around  7:10 p.m. armed with search warrant No.. 332019 issued by Judge Danilo S. Cryz of RTC Branch 152, Pasig City.

National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) Direct Major General Guillermo Eleazar and San Juan Mayor Francis Zamora were present during the raid.

Eleazar  told newsmen  that  neighbors grew suspicious of the amount of fertilizers being brought into the building and reported the matter.

“Even though wala yung may-ari at wala yung occupant… meron naman tayong documents na makukuha so that when we file the case against the suspect na ang ating impormasyon ay isang Chinese. So ayun ang mananagot dito. Baka nakatunog kaya walang tao dito ” Eleazar said.

San Juan Mayor Francis Zamora said “Hindi po natin palalampasin ang iligal na droga sa ating lungsod. Wala tayong sasantuhin, lahat ay ating gagawin para masugpo ito. Kalaban natin ang droga, hindi natin ito papayagan sa San Juan”.

Police said a number of air conditioned rooms were found to have marijuana plants of varying sizes.

Authorities have been conducting surveillance in the area for the past seven months.

Charges of violation of Section 11 and 16 of R.A. 9165 will be filed against Huang and Uy, police said.
