After a physical examination by Customs personnel, some 200 grams of a concealed white crystalline substance were discovered inside the parcel.

It was later confirmed as shabu based on the results of laboratory testing by the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA).

The agency is conducting a custodial investigation of the arrested claimant for an eventual inquest proceeding for violation of Republic Act 9165, also known as the Anti-Illegal Drugs Act, and RA 10863, also known as the Customs Modernization Act (CMTA).

The operation was conducted in coordination with the PDEA and the NAIA Inter-Agency Drug Interdiction Task Group.
