Also nabbed was Wong's "cohort" identified as Joann QuiƱones, 37, of Balusong in Matina.

Wong was arrested after selling suspected shabu worth P1,000 to a PDEA agent who acted as poseur buyer.

QuiƱones, on the other hand, was accused of conspiring with Wong in selling illegal drugs.

PDEA-Davao Director Emerson Rosales said the suspects are now detained at the agency's jail facility awaiting charges to be filed against them.

Recovered from Wong's possession were four medium sachets of suspected shabu, approximately weighing five grams; assorted improvised drug paraphernalia; and two pieces of P500 marked money bill.

The seized "illegal drugs and drug paraphernalia" were submitted to the Philippine National Police Crime Laboratory at Ecoland in Matina for laboratory examination.
