Isabela, Cagayan Valley (CNN Philippines) — PNP Chief Ronald 'Bato' Dela Rosa says the owner and operator of the multi-million-peso shabu laboratory along Maharlika Highway in Cauayan City in Isabela province may have connections to the government including the Bureau of Customs.

"Malaki talaga ito. hindi naman sila makapag-import ng ganitong kalaki CPECs (Chemical Precursors and Essential Chemicals). Hindi ba ang dami? Kung wala silang sindikato, kung dinaan man ito legally, may contact ito sa either sa customs, sa pagpasok dito may contact ito,"
 said Dela Rosa.
The shabu laboratory is allegedly owned and operated by a certain Kim Punzalan Uy.
Dela Rosa on Monday said the drug facility can make up to 400 kilograms of shabu every 10 days.
"Unlike yung sa nadiscover natin doon sa pampanga na wala pa
masyado traces na nagamit. ito dito sabi ng pdea may mga traces na
nakapagproduce na. nakapagtest production na," Dela Rosa said.
"Ito nasa highway lang. Hindi ka magdududa kasi along the highway. sa sentro pa ng syudad, sa harap pa ng airport. hindi ka talaga magdududa dito."
Armed with a search warrant, authorities raided the place on Sunday.

Uy and another Chinese identified as Cangbo She were killed in a firefight.

"Pagpasok nila andito sila yung dalawa at
nakipaglaban. May mga baril na nakuha sa kanila," explained the PNP chief.
Authorities find equipment and raw materials used for making shabu inside the two warehouses in the compound.
An air scrubber, which filters fumes so that the laboratory will not produce foul smell was also discovered.

Syndicate Member

Uy is said to be a member of the Ahong Drug Syndicate with big-time drug lords Atong Lee, alias Lung, and Lo Chi.
Authorities said the syndicate operated the shabu laboratory in Celadon Residences in Sta. Cruz, Manila that was discovered in January this year.

This was where Marine Lieutenant Colonel Ferdinand Marcelino was arrested.
The Justice Department released him after it dropped drug complaints filed against him.


Cauayan City Mayor Bernard Faustino Dy said Uy had legitimate businesses in Cauayan City including a general merchandise store.

"Hindi man sila nagtatago, very out in the open. Nag-miyembro pa ng rotary ang isa. So akala nila at home na at home at protektado sila. Ganon po kami magprotekta sa mga negosyante dito sa aming lugar. Baka akala nila kasama ang proteksyon sa drugs," said Dy.
PDEA is investigating if Uy and his illegal drug operations are getting protection from influential persons.
