Ex-cop, nephew nabbed for selling ‘shabu’ in Pateros

/ 05:03 AM November 05, 2018

An anonymous text led to the arrest of a dismissed police officer and his nephew after they allegedly sold “shabu” (crystal meth) to undercover policemen at Barangay Tabacalera in Pateros on Saturday.

PO1 Alexander Pili Ilagan, a former member of the Manila Police District, was dismissed from the service on May 26, 2016, for two counts of excessive absences that were tantamount to serious neglect of duty, said Southern Police District director, Senior Supt. Eliseo Cruz.

According to Cruz, Ilagan cited “family problems” when he went AWOL or absent without leave for 24 days in February 2015, and for 30 days in March 2015.


A police report said that members of the Pateros’ police antidrugs unit conducted a buy-bust operation on Saturday afternoon with Ilagan and his nephew, Michael Pili, as the targets. Pili was reportedly a “drug personality included on [the] Pateros watch list.”

The pair was arrested in Pili’s house on Tiamsic Street in Pateros. They yielded three sachets of shabu.
