He was the first drug courier from the Philippines to have been arrested in Hong Kong since Jul 30, 2016 when Filipina tourist Ann Raian Cruz was nabbed at Chek Lap Kok airport carrying some 700 grams of cocaine in her luggage.
During her trial, a letter sent by the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency to the High Court said President Rodrigo Duterte Cruz had plugged the drug flow to Hong Kong from the Ninoy Aquino International Airport.

It was not immediately clear from which airport in the Philippines the latest suspect had departed from on the way to Macau.

Under Hong Kong’s Dangerous Drugs Ordinance, trafficking in dangerous drugs is a serious offense with a maximum penalty upon conviction of $5 million fine and life imprisonment.
Drug mules who are charged with this offense could be meted this penalty.

The Customs Department has advised the public to report any suspected drug trafficking activities to its 24-hour hotline 2545 6182 or its dedicated crime-reporting email account,
