MANILA, Philippines — The Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) raided a warehouse of the Dragon Wu drug ring in Malabon yesterday. Lasala said among the chemicals found in the warehouse used in the manufacture of shabu include sulfuric acid, acetone, ethyl acetate, ethanol, methanol, sodium hydroxide and sodium acetate. In a press conference, Lasala said the house was used as a warehouse for the chemicals and equipment used in two shabu laboratories raided by the PDEA in Batangas and Tinajeros, Malabon last week. The shabu laboratories and warehouse were discovered after a seven–month-long investigation by police and PDEA in coordination with China’s Office of the National Narcotics Control Commission. Shen Yue, the commission’s director for operations, said the Dragon Wu drug ring is a transnational drug syndicate based in Hong Kong and operating in the Golden Triangle – the border of Laos, Myanmar and Thailand.
