Cop, suspect killed in Minglanilla drug raid

TWO men, including a policeman, were killed in a drug bust in Barangay Tulay, Minglanilla at 5:45 p.m. Monday, February 19.

Juvie Franza, identified as a high-value drug target in Minglanilla, was killed when he attempted to fight off policemen who were about to arrest him in Sitio Bacay in Barangay Tulay.

Based on police's initial investigation, Franza attempted to run away from police but was cornered.

Franza attempted to fight off policemen but was hit in the head, killing him instantly.

But while Franza was successfully neutralized, one of the raiding operatives, Police Officer 2 Evie Espina, was also killed during the operation.

Police tried to bring Espina to the South General Hospital but he died before arriving there.

Police recovered a .9mm pistol, which reportedly had markings of the Philippine National Police, and several sachets of suspected shabu (crystal meth). Justin K. Vestil)
