A drug parcel from Africa was contained shabu worth of P2.2 million. It contained 495 grams of crystal methamphetamine with an estimated  $330,000.

They saw 22 bags of potato starch and dried plants, when they opened it, it contained 16 bags of crystal meth. They undercover and deliver the package to know the story behind it.

Adelaida called Analyn to verify in DHL if the package is in Analyn's name. So Analyn called DHL before the delivery date and told Adelaida it was confirmed that she was the named recipient of the package.

On May 4, DHL delivered the package, while Analyn was signing the documents, she arrested.

Analyn cooperates with the investigator, they took her phone. She called Adelaida two times but the man answered the phone and said Adelaida was not there. She called several times but no longer answered.

The prosecutor claimed Analyn was lying and made a story because Adelaida was a man. From her phone why Analyn ask Adelaida for a picture of her wife. Analyn said they are joking because she saw Adelaida kissing another woman in a toilet.
