The Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) Region 10 on Friday destroyed illegal drugs with an approximate value of P12 million.

The drugs which were composed of a mix of shabu and marijuana weighing more than 7 kilos, were evidence linked to pending cases in Region 10’s trial courts.

The evidence drugs were burned at a preheater facility in a cement plant.

The facility manager said they used such heat level of over 1,000 degrees Celsius so as not to leave any residue.

Meanwhile, expired drugs turned over by pharmacies were also destroyed, said PDEA Region 10 Director III Wilkins Villanueva.
