FEATURED STORIES

Recovered from the scene were about 8 big sachets of suspected shabu, P500 marked money and 9mm pistol.

Initial investigation showed that Butil did not report for work on Thursday at the Lila police station where he had been assigned since Aug. 23.

The police learned that Butil was in Panglao about 6:30 p.m. on that day to allegedly supply shabu to Melinda Borja.

Butil apparently didn’t know that Borja had been arrested earlier by the Panglao police after she and four others were caught repacking shabu in a resort here.

The four others were Moises Abing, Jaypee Pacot, Florante Estomata and Welbee Caragan.

Based on the information recovered from cellular phone of Borja, the police learned about the suspect’s illegal transaction with Butil.

Police were able to track down Butil who was still in the area.

According to Police Supt. Ricky Delilis, spokesman of the Bohol Provincial Police Office, they had been monitoring Butil’s illegal activities. JE/rga
