An American citizen claiming to be a retired intelligence officer of the United States Air Force was nabbed for possession of so-called party drugs in Taguig City, Monday.
According to a report by GMA News' Steve Dailisan, the suspect identified by authorities as Raul Antonio Cisneros was arrested by the Taguig police in his condominium unit around 2 p.m.
More than 1,000 tablets of assorted party drugs and P40,000 cash were seized during the raid.
Cisneros said he thought that illegal drugs were legal in the Philippines.
"I thought this is (party drugs) is okay here," he said.
Cisneros, who arrived at the country only in April, did not give details on how he brought the drugs into the country.
"I'm not saying these aren't mine but I'm helping some Filipinos," he said. "It was given to people who want it," added Cisneros.
