CAMP OLIVAS, Pampanga -- A drug personality was killed, while two others were arrested, in a drug bust in Bulacan on Thursday, December 28.
Senior Superintendent Romeo Caramat, Bulacan police provincial director, identified the slain drug personality as a certain alias Onad.
Arrested were Aristotle Paulino aliasToteng, 32, and Clarissa Bedania alias Bujing, 46, both of Barangay Sto. Rosario, Malolos City.
Caramat said the San Jose Del Monte City police conducted a drug bust operation against alias Onad in Barangay Minuyan. However, when the suspect noticed that his buyer was a police officer, he drew his gun and fired towards the policemen.
That prompted the lawmen to retaliate, killing the suspect on the spot, he said.
Recovered from the crime scene were a calibre .45 Colt, a heat-sealed sachet of suspected shabu and P500 marked money used in the buy-bust operation.
Caramat said Paulino and Bedania were arrested after selling a sachet of shabu to an undercover police officer in Barangay San Juan, Malolos City.
Confiscated from them were three sachets of shabu, a pouch containing five glass tooters, a box containing a weighing scale, four empty sachets with shabu residue, five disposable lighters, and six aluminum foil strips.
Caramat said the two arrested suspects are on the list of drug personalities in the area. (Ric Sapnu)
