Two killed in Sunday buy-busts

TWO ALLEGED drug dealers were killed in two separate operations in Bago Gallera and Calinan on Sunday evening, Dec. 10.

Reportedly, the suspect handed over a sachet of shabu in exchange for buy-bust money, so the police tried to arrest him. However, he allegedly shot the operative who fired back in retaliation.

The suspect was brought to Mediquest Hospital but did not make it.

Seized from him were a .9mm pistol and three grams of shabu worth P20,400.

In an earlier operation, alias Taro was also killed in an operation conducted by the Calinan police at 2:28 a.m.

According to the report, the suspect fired against the operative when he was about to be arrested during the buy-bust. The suspect sustained a gunshot wound and was declared dead on arrival at the Isaac Robillo Hospital.

Seized from the suspect’s sling bag was a .9mm pistol with three live bullets. As of this writing, police have yet to identify the suspect.
