MANILA, Philippines – The Philippine National Police (PNP) dismissed on Thursday four police officers caught in a drug buy-bust operation in Bacoor City, Cavite late Wednesday morning.
PNP Officer-in-Charge, Police Deputy Director General Leonardo A. Espina ordered the summary dismissal proceedings against P03 Paul Barriosa Santoeli, P03 Jay Salondro Ilagan, P01 Joeyluz Guiruela Pulusan and P01 Roger Uy Reble, all members of the Police Community Precinct 2 of Bacoor City Police Station.
Espina also directed PNP Calabarzon Regional Director Chief Superintendent Jesus Gatchalian to “file all necessary administrative and criminal cases” against the four police officers.
“See to it that they do not go out of jail anymore,” Espina said.
The drug buy-bust operation, led by operatives of the Cavite provincial police and the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA), yielded nine pieces of heat-sealed transparent plastic sachet containing suspected shabu, three Glock 9mm pistols and an M-16 rifle.
According to the PNP, all four policemen are currently being subjected under pre-charge investigation.
