Cops kill 3 in Cavite, Laguna antidrug ops

SAN PEDRO CITY – Three suspected illegal drug pushers, one of them facing murder charges, were killed in separate shootouts with the police in Cavite and Laguna provinces.

In Cavite, a suspect initially identified only as alias “Bumbay,” was killed at about 1 a.m. Sunday in Barangay (village) San Francisco in General Trias City, said Chief Supt. Guillermo Eleazar, director of the Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal, Quezon (CALABARZON) police.


Eleazar said the suspect was carrying P8,000 worth of suspected “shabu” (crystal meth) to deliver to an undercover policeman. He said the suspect must have sensed it was a sting operation that he suddenly drew and fired his 9mm gun. The suspect missed and the policeman shot back and killed him.


In Laguna, two drug suspects were also killed in a buy-bust operation at about 9:30 p.m. Saturday in Barangay Platero, Biñan City.

The police have so far identified only one of them as Jerwin Bartolazo, who according to the police report, also faced murder charges.

Eleazar said the police recovered three firearms from the slain suspects but one of these turned to be a toy gun. /cbb
