The staff of the Bureau of Correction’s (BUCOR) Inmate Visitation Service Unit (IVSU) captured Zuniga. The defendant allegedly attempted to transport four transparent plastic bags filled with shabu, or methamphetamine hydrochloride.

According to the report, the illegal drug is worth P2,380,000. It was found at the National Bilibid Prison’s Maximum Security Compound near the inmate visitation area in the city of Muntinlupa.
