Cops uncover new drug pusher modus




Police have uncovered a new strategy of drug peddlers in dispos­ing shabu following the death of a suspected drug pusher in a buy-bust in Odiongan town of Romblon.

Chief Supt. Emmanuel Licup, di­rector of the MIMAROPA (Mindoro Occidental and Oriental, Marin­duque, Romblon and Palawan) re­gional police, said the slain suspect came all the way from Batangas to sell drugs.

He identified the slain suspect as Rolando Medina, 49, a resident of Malabanan, Balite, Batangas.

The death of Medina confirmed intelligence reports that some drug pushers are swapping territories in order to avoid detection of the po­lice.

Police sources said that drug pushers who are already listed in watchlist in their respective areas of operations would trade terri­tory with fellow drug pushers. They would then exchange contacts with their customers.

Medina was killed after he alleg­edly traded with shots with police­men during a buy-bust in Barangay Liwanag, Odiongan town at around 3 p.m. on Tuesday.

Seized from him were a .38 re­volver and P30,000 worth of shabu.

In the case of Medina, Licup said the suspect is already a listed high-value target in the region.

In Bulacan, a certain Hapon was also killed when he allegedly tried to kill a police poseur-buyer in Ba­rangay Mulawin, San Jose del Monte City.
