GENERAL SANTOS CITY, Philippines — Agents arrested two sibling drug dealers and seized from them P1 million worth of shabu in separate operations Wednesday.
Combined personnel of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency-12, the police and the Army-led Task Force GenSan first raided and found P750,000 worth of shabu in the house of Michelle Allaga in Barangay Katangawan here.
She is wanted for large-scale drug trafficking in General Santos City and in nearby towns in Sarangani province.
Gil Cesario Castro, PDEA director for Region 12, said it was from Allaga’s vigilant neighbors that they learned of her illegal activities and her exact location on Wednesday.
Allaga’s younger brother, the 30-year-old Melvin Ray, was also arrested at another house in Barangay Malandag in Malungon, Sarangani about two hours later.
The house is also owned by his detained older sister, a distribution point for shabu in nearby municipalities.

The older Allaga is included in PDEA-12’s list of most wanted drug dealers in Region 12.
Castro said agents have confiscated P250,000 worth of shabu from Melvin Ray.
Castro said the Allagas are now their custody, to be prosecuted for violation of the Philippine Dangerous Drugs Act.
