A Filipina tagged as a financier of a major drug network and her Pakistani husband were arrested in an anti-drug operation in General Santos City on Monday.

Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency Region 12 head Gil Cesario Castro identified the couple as Anjelie Osama, 30; and Shahzad Khan alias Salman Khan, 35.

Castro said their intelligence information showed the couple, deemed high-value targets, had been allegedly financing illegal drug-related activities in the city and neighboring areas.

They have been linked to the El Patron Drug Group, which he said is a “major drug network connected to groups operating in other regions.”

Seized from them during search operations in Purok Malakas in Barangay San Isidro past 2 a.m. were 10 grams of suspected methamphetamine hydrochloride (shabu) worth P50,000, a ledger with bank deposit slips and assorted documents detailing supposed drug transactions.

Earlier, three alleged members of the El Patron Drug Group were arrested in nearby Maasim town in Sarangani. They included Arman Bada, 47; wife Lovely, 37; and Zaldy Ong, 58.
