Probe ordered of cops in drugs
CAMP OLIVAS, Pampanga—The police chief of Central Luzon on Thursday ordered an investigation of the possible links of policemen to a dealer of “shabu” (methamphetamine hydrochloride) who was arrested in San Narcisco town in Zambales province on Wednesday.
Chief Supt. Raul Petrasanta said the probe sought to weed out from the service policemen those who are involved in the illegal drugs trade. Petrasanta said the suspected big-time drug dealer, Said Abubakar, was seen at a gasoline station in Barangay Natividad in San Narciso town after a monthlong surveillance by the police’s regional intelligence operations section.
Abubakar was arrested based on a warrant issued by a court in Olongapo City on July 16, 2013, for violation of Republic Act No. 9165 (Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002). Tonette Orejas, Inquirer Central Luzon
