Quezon City policemen confiscated more unregistered beauty products worth P10 million during a
follow-up operation in the city.

Quezon City Police District (QCPD) director Chief Supt. Guillermo Lorenzo T. Eleazar said
the operation was an offshoot of the two previous raids last Tuesday in Bgy. Paltok which resulted
in the arrest of owners Lilian Marte and Michelle Cablayan, and six other suspects, and the
confiscation of P13.5 million worth of beauty products.
    
After the arrest of the suspects, the operatives were informed that more illegal beauty
products were kept by Cablayan at Unit 807 Cherry Orchard Suites, Saturn St., Bgy. Tandang Sora,
prompting the authorities to apply for another search warrant.
    
At 10 a.m., the operatives served the search warrant which resulted in the confiscation of
several boxes of unregistered whitening and cosmetic products worth P10 million.
    
Eleazar commended the operatives for the successful operations and the arrest of the
suspects.
