A farmer was taken to the jail Wednesday afternoon in Bulanao, Tabuk City, Kalinga for shabu.
Policemen seized two small heat-sealed plastic transparent sachet containing shabu weighing .3 gram valued at P2,040.00 when Johnson Wagacon Langoban, 51, from Purok 5, Bulanao Centro, tried to sell to government agents.
When frisked, six more sachets of shabu weighing one gram worth P6,000.00 were seized.
Policemen also found two improvised tooters, two lighters, a pair of scissors, three empty sachets and three aluminum foils from Langoban.
A day before that, two alleged shabu traders were also arrested by National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) Cordillera agents and Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) Cordillera in a dusk sting operation at Barangay Lucnab, Baguio City.

Another plastic sachet of shabu weighing .2 grams with estimated market value of P1,360.00 were seized from the duo.
The NBI-Cordillera, who said that the duo were considered as high value targets, also were keeping an aluminum strip containing shabu, a digital weighing scale; four lighters; assorted drug paraphernalia.
