Quirino Avenue, Pandacan.
   
Police said the operation was conducted at around 9:30 p.m. on Interior 22, Zamora Street.
   
Prior to it, police received information that drugs are being sold in the area openly so a buy-bust operation was conducted by Station 10 operatives.
   
The suspects were arrested. Police recovered from them six plastic sachets containing shabu.
