Anti-narcotics agents revealed yesterday that a local politician might have something to do with the operation of a shabu laboratory in Dingalan, Aurora, which they raided Wednesday.

But Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) Director Dionisio Santiago refused to divulge the name of the politician, saying they have yet to gather pieces of evidence to boost their allegation. “We are now looking at this angle and gathering pieces of evidence linking him to this illegal activity,” said Santiago.

Santiago said they are also hunting down a certain Hernani de Guzman of Cabanatuan City whom he said has something to do with the operation of the dismantled shabu laboratory. On Wednesday, joint PDEA and National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) agents swooped down on a house located the premises of the Joey and Simon resort in Barangay Butas na Bato after confirming reports of the existence of the laboratory.

Four foreigners were collared during the operation, three of them are the alleged chemists. At least five kilos of chemicals used in the manufacture of shabu and some laboratory equipment were seized during the operation.
