A GrabExpress driver partner has been instrumental in the reported seizing of some PhP 1.5M worth of party drugs and the arrest of two college students for violation of RA9165 or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act in Makati earlier this week.
According to Atty. Nicka Hosaka, Grab Public Affairs Manager,
the GrabExpress driver became suspicious when the suspects refused to open the package that was supposed to be sent to Bonifacio Global City. This prompted the GrabExpress driver to deliver the package straight to the police station instead.
Grab commends the vigilance of the GrabExpress driver and his immediate decision to report his suspicions to the authorities.
Grab, together with its government agency partners – PNP and PDEA, is firm in its commitment to prevent the use of the platform for delivering illegal narcotics and other questionable items. Grab continues to engage its driver partners to be alert and vigilant of suspicious activities in the performance of their duties, to help promote a drug-free and crime-free Philippines.
