MANILA, Philippines — A village councilman was killed in an alleged shootout with anti-narcotics agents in Ligao City, Albay yesterday.
July Ronatay of Barangay Bay allegedly drew his gun when he sensed he had sold shabu to undercover agents.
“He has long been under surveillance by our anti- drug operatives,” Superintendent Lorenzo Bacia, Ligao City police chief, said.
In Bulacan, an alias Demonyo was shot dead when he fired at police officers in a sting in Barangay Santo Cristo, Pulilan on Monday.
Police said 15 sachets of shabu weighing around five grams with an estimated street value of P25,000, a .38-caliber revolver and marked money were recovered from the fatality.
Nine other suspected drug dealers were arrested in San Jose del Monte, Norzagaray, Obando, San Rafael, Bocaue and San Miguel also in Bulacan in the past two days. The suspects reportedly yielded 21 sachets of shabu.
