2 suspected drug pushers dead in Bataan buy bust

LIMAY, Bataan –Two suspected drug pushers were killed after they tried to shoot it with police in a buy bust operation here Thursday evening.

Police Senior Supt. Benjamin Silo, Jr., Bataan police director, on Friday said a certain Rey and his still unidentified companion tried to escape when they apparently sensed that they were dealing with a police-poseur-buyer.

The suspects who were cornered in a vacant lot in an upland sitio in Limay pulled their handguns and fired but missed on the chasing policemen who returned fire and hit them, Silo said.

Scene of the crime operatives recovered from suspects two caliber .38 revolvers with live bullets, fired cartridges, four heat-sealed transparent plastic sachet of shabu, weighing scales and cash of more than PHP2,750.

Police are still waiting for relatives to claim the bodies and their identification known. Ernie Esconde/PNA-northboundasia.com
