An­other sus­pected drug per­son­al­ity was killed while a govern­ment em­ployee was ar­rested in a sep­a­rate an­tiil­le­gal drug oper­a­tions in Ca­gayan de Oro City, Wed­nes­day, Novem­ber 7.

Po­lice killed Jeremi Paderan Jr. alias “Along”, res­i­dent of Dis­trict 6, Con­so­la­cion, this city in what the po­lice claimed to be a drug buy-bust.

Again, au­thor­i­ties in­sisted the sus­pect fought back (nan­la­ban) which re­sulted to an armed con­fronta­tion.

Po­lice in­ves­ti­ga­tion dis­closed that the sus­pect, who was on board a mo­tor­cy­cle with a com­pan­ion, de­liv­ered a sa­chet of sus­pected shabu (Metham­phetamine hy­dro-chlo­ride) to an un­der­cover po­lice­man.

But, when the sus­pect’s com­pan­ion sensed that they were deal­ing with the po­lice, he im­me­di­ately fled leav­ing the tar­get sus­pect in the area.

The sus­pect al­legedly fired his 38 cal­iber re­volver, forc­ing the backup op­er­a­tives to re­tal­i­ate hit­ting the sus­pect thrice on the body.

He was rushed to the hos­pi­tal but was de­clared dead shortly.

In­ves­ti­ga­tors re­cov­ered the sus­pect’s gun and three sa­chets of sus­pected meth in the area.

Su­per­in­ten­dent Mardy Hor­tillosa II, spokesper­son of the Ca­gayan de Oro City Po­lice Of­fice (Cocpo), said the ev­i­dences in­clud­ing the gun will be turned over to the court.

“Kanang mga ar­mas nga makuha sa mga sus­pek i-present na sa korte dili na makuha pag­ba­lik sa pulis or else maka­suhan ang po­lice ana,” he said.

Hor­tillosa said Paderan was fig­ured in the Di­rec­tor for In­tel­li­gence (DI) list and was the 12th drug sus­pect killed in the city.

On the other hand, a worker of the Land Trans­porta­tion Of­fice-North­ern Min­danao (LTO-10) sur­vived and was ar­rested alive in the drug bust launched by the anti-nar­cotics agents in Bu­lua, this city.

Mem­bers of the Philip­pine Drug En­force­ment Agency-North­ern Min­danao (PDEA-10) ar­rested Michael Rey Lau­reta, LTO’s trans­porta­tion reg­u­la­tion of­fi­cer af­ter he al­legedly de­liv­ered sa­chets of sus­pected shabu.

Sus­pect will face drug charges.
