This shabu lab in Arayat is the second found in Pampanga since Sept. 7. Three labs were found in Angeles City since March.

Police and anti-narcotics operatives discovered another shabu factory at the foot of Mount Arayat in Barangay Lacquios on Thursday, the second shabu laboratory overrun by authorities in a span of two weeks.

“This is the biggest shabu laboratory we have discovered not only in Pampanga but in the entire country, “said Senior Supt. Rodolfo Recomono Jr., director of Pampanga Provincial Police Office, while describing the equipment and facility in the area.

Recomono said however no persons were arrested during the raid as occupants scampered to different directions to avoid the approaching lawmen.

The raiding team, composed of operatives from the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency 3 (PDEA3) and local police, Recomono said found seven large hyrogenators and chromatograph machine inside the laboratory, situated around 5 kilometers from the shabu lab discovered in Magalang town recently.

“Each hyrdogenator can manufacture 50 to 100 kilograms of shabu per day as per assessment of the crime laboratory chemists, while the chromatograph machine is an equipment that determines the purity of shabu,” said Recomono over the phone.

Recomono said the laboratory is surrounded by an 8 to 10-feet concrete fence, with hog farms beside it and a melting plant of plastics.

“Good thing we have discovered this laboratory before it can produce and distribute finished products to the market,” Recomono said.

“My instruction to all police chiefs in the province is to be pro-active. And it pays,” he added.

Supt. Samuel Sevilla, Arayat police chief, was conducting regular inspection of all industries specifically hog and poultry farms following the discovery of a shabu laboratory in nearby Bgy. San Ildefonso (Bical), Magalang, Pampanga two weeks ago.

Sevilla said the compound is occupied by unidentified persons who quickly fled after they noticed the approaching policemen.

“It was also abandoned,” he noted.

He said no one came forward to claim ownership of the property.

Policemen and PDEA personnel are currently undertaking inventory of the equipment and seized precursors found inside the warehouse shabu laboratory.
