SAN PEDRO CITY — A suspected illegal drugs pusher was killed while six others were arrested in separate police operations in Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal, and Quezon (Calabarzon) on Monday.

The slain suspect, identified as Verlito Calixtro, alias “Boyong,” was a “remnant” of the Bong Chavez-gun-for-hire and illegal drugs group, whose three leaders and members were also killed in a police operation in Antipolo City, Rizal last June, police said.


Members of the drug enforcement unit conducted a buy-bust around 4 p.m. Sunday in Barangay Inarawan in Antipolo City.  Calixtro reportedly engaged the law enforcers in a gunfight which led to his death.

Six sachets of suspected “shabu” (crystal meth) and a .38 caliber gun were recovered from the suspect, police said.


Meanwhile, drug suspects Nick Marino and Edison Lumame were arrested in a buy-bust operation past midnight on Monday in Barangay Silangan, San Mateo, Rizal.

The police also arrested Ronald Cruz and Neorilyn Mendoza in Barangay Mamatid, Cabuyao City, Laguna around 2 a.m. after he was caught selling   five sachets of alleged shabu to undercover policemen.

In Mataas na Kahoy, Batangas, police arrested Mark Orzales in Barangay 2, while suspect Rhoby Ruiz was arrested in Cavite City in separate sting operations around 3 a.m. Monday. /ee
