MANILA, Philippines – Anti-narcotics agents have arrested 3 policemen for peddling cocaine in Las Piñas City.
The Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) identified the suspects as Senior Police Officer 2 Roger Sangilan, Police Officer 2 Michael Castroverde and Senior Police Officer 4 Olegarion Perlado.
The PDEA said the 3 policemen are members of the Police Security Protection Group based in the Philippine National Police’s national headquarters in Camp Crame.
The agency said the 3 policemen were caught in the act of selling at least 500 grams of cocaine during a buy-bust operation in Las Piñas City.
The agency also suspects that the policemen are involved in a carjacking syndicate because their vehicle bore license plates from a stolen vehicle. — report from Dominic Almelor, ABS-CBN News
