Man with 4.8 kilos of cocaine nabbed at Naia

 

Authorities have arrested a 22-year-old Filipino for attempting to smuggle 4.8 kilos of cocaine into the country.

The man was identified by Bureau of Immigration (BI) Commissioner Jaime Morente as Jon-Jon Villamin Jr.

Villamin was arrested by operatives of the BI, Bureau of Customs (BOC) and the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) upon his arrival in Manila on board Emirates flight EK332 from Dubai.

 

Based on the report to  Department of Justice (DOJ) of Intelligence Officer II Bienvenido Castillo, he was informed by PDEA about the arrival of a possible drug mule.

“I immediately went to the Terminal 3 and proceeded to Emirates airlines to confirm if our subject was on board. Emirate ground staff confirmed that indeed subject was on board,” Castillo said.

The task group members followed Villamin as he went to the carousel to get his check-in baggage after which they accosted the suspect and invited him for questioning at the Customs office.

Villamin allegedly denied knowing that he had cocaine in his luggage, saying it was given to him by a Brazilian friend who promised to call and instruct him where to bring the luggage upon his arrival in Manila. RAM/rga

Most places in the world you would say - nobody would possibly believe this story . However, given the state of awareness of many filipinos its easy to see how a 22 year old pinoy could actually believe he was helping out a friend !  And not give it a second thought

hey , in the west they say there is one born every minute. In the Philippines i think it is more like 5,000 born every minute.

Better to be busted arriving at the airport than to be busted out on the street if you know what I mean.

Anybody who believes that drug mule's BS story about "helping out a friend" is an idiot.

 

Tell it to the judge, Jon-Jon! With Du30 currently inhabiting Malacanang Palace, I doubt there's a judge in the Philippines who's going to go easy on him.

 

They may very well be calling Jon-Jon "Gone-Gone" in the not too distant future.

 

:lmao:

Keeping with that theme, it is very plausible that the accused was absolutely oblivious to normal and standard travel precautions that have been in effect for at least 50 years. After all, it is typical of the Philippines to be uninformed on basic universal global issues.
