Philippines arrests suspected Chinese drug dealer

Philippine police say they have arrested a suspected Chinese drug trafficker and seized about $5.2 million worth of illegal drugs in a sting operation.
Metropolitan Manila Chief Superintendent Alan Purisima says undercover officers arrested the 44-year-old man from Xiamen late Tuesday and seized about 98 pounds (44.5 kilograms) of methamphetamine hydrochloride and 4.4 pounds (2 kilograms) of marijuana.
Purisima said Wednesday the man is the eleventh person arrested this year believed to belong to a Chinese ring engaged in the manufacture and distribution of illegal drugs in the country.
