The claimants were listed as Rowena Canapit and Michael de Guzman, according to the BOC’s statement. In order to demand the packages at the Quezon City Postal Office, the two presented an authorization letter from the consignee, a woman named Glory Joy Buzeta.

According to the BOC, the parcels were delivered from the Netherlands by Agner Buzeta and Victor Martis. “Handbags and accessories,” “baby clothing,” and “clothes” were all declared on the packages.

“The seized ecstasy tablets were initially discovered when the X-ray images thereof yielded suspicious items, prompting the assigned Customs Examiner to conduct 100% physical examination of the subject packages,” the BOC said.

The ecstasy tablets were discovered hidden in the false space or compartment of each side of the subject packages during the physical inspection. The liable persons, according to BOC, will be charged with violating Section 1401 of the Customs Modernization and Tariff Act, as well as the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002.
