CAMP GEN. ALEJO SANTOS, Bulacan — A former policeman and a drug suspect were killed in separate buy-bust operations in this province after they reportedly engaged policemen in a shootout on Thursday.

Rowell Reynon, 47, a dismissed policeman from Sta. Cruz, Guiguinto, was included in the police’s drugs watch list, said Senior Supt. Chito Bersaluna, Bulacan police director.


Bersaluna said Reynon was first dismissed from the service in 2001 but was reinstated in 2002.

In 2010, Reynon was again dismissed for involvement in the illegal drugs trade of the so-called “Alabang Boys,” he added. Reynon was also allegedly involved in a swindling case in 2014.


Meanwhile, Reynaldo Sta. Ana, 43, who was in Baliwag police’s drugs watch list, was killed at around 3:30 a.m. on NIA Road in Barangay Pagala in Baliwag.

Seized from them were a Honda motorcycle, .38-caliber firearms, “shabu” (crystal meth) and drug paraphernalia. /ee
