MALOLOS CITY, Bulacan — Four suspected drug peddlers died in separate drug buy-bust operations on Saturday.
PCol. Lawrence Cajipe, acting provincial director of the Bulacan Provincial Police Office, identified the slain suspects as Edmar Samson, Chamberlain Domingo, Chadwin Santos and an unnamed male.
Samson, together with the unidentified male, tried to evade arrest by firing at operatives but were killed after authorities retaliated during a consummated drug transaction in Barangay Muzon, San Jose del Monte.
Recovered from the suspects were two improvised shotguns (sumpak) loaded with two 12G fired empty shell, three pieces fired cartridge cases of caliber 9mm, two caliber .22 TCM fired cartridges, 18 plastic sachets of suspected shabu, a P500 bill in marked money and one RUSI skeletal motorcycle without plate number.
