ORION, Bataan — Police on Friday near midnight killed a suspected drug supplier from Cavite during a buy-bust operation here.

Guevara reported to Police Senior Supt. Benjamin Silo, Jr., Bataan police director, that a drug dependent who surrendered tipped off the police of the activities of the victim.
