TWO men were killed by police operatives reportedly in a buy-bust operation in Sta. Ana, Manila yesterday.
SPO3 Milbert Balinggan, of the Manila Police District (MPD)-Crimes Against Persons Investigation Section (CAPIS), said five plastic sachets of marijuana, seven plastic sachets of shabu, a cal. .38 revolver, two home-made shotguns and several bullets were confiscated by the Station Anti-Illegal Drugs Special Operations Task Unit (SAID-SOTU) of the MPD-Station 6 from suspects Dantes Radas and one alias ‘Ronald Kalbo’, both of 2251 Road 4, Fabie State, Sta. Ana.
Balinggan said the operation was conducted at 1:45 a.m. following surveillance operations regarding the alleged involvement of the suspects in illegal drug activities.
PO3 Nelson Laguardia and PO1 Loui dela Cruz reportedly served as poseur-buyers but the suspects sensed they were cops so a shooting encounter allegedly took place.
