Villaneuva said the informer told authorities that the target car was to deliver shabu to Iligan City. Police identified the four men arrested during the operation as Ryan Abdul Malik, Sanawiya Ampaso Calumbang, Khadaffy Aloyudan, and Jimmy Sarip – all were residents of Salvador, Lanao del Norte.

Villanueva said the suspects were trapped on Level 2 of the mall's parking area. Also, he said that this was the second attempt to smuggle illegal drugs into the city in months. Last year, a couple was arrested after yielding  a package containing a kilo of shabu.

Earlier, Iligan City's lone district Representative Vicente Belmonte Jr. and chairman of the committee on dangerous drugs said that the couple had been released. “Paiimbestigahan natin ito bakit napawalang-sala ang mag-asawang nahulihan ng isang kilong shabu at maging ang PDEA ay mag-iimbestiga rin,” Belmonte said in an interview on local radio.
