A SUSPECTED drug peddler in San Dionisio, Iloilo figured in a shootout with anti-drug agents and the police during a buy-bust operation Tuesday evening.

But Jonathan Azuelo, 39, of Arceo St., Poblacion, San Dionisio, has no match to the combined forces of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) and police of San Dionisio and Estancia towns.

Azuelo was busted after selling a sachet of suspected shabu to a PDEA poseur-buyer for P500.

The suspect sensed that authorities were swarming his house and tried to resist by firing three times his caliber .45 pistol.

The PDEA-PNP team retaliated with two gunshots prompting Azuelo to surrender.

Aside from Azuelo, the team also arrested Rene Barluado of Villa Hermosa, Sara, Iloilo; Ronnie Bert Ociel of San Dionisio and Arcel Isidro of Brgy. Almeñana, Lemery, Iloilo after they were caught sniffing suspected shabu inside the suspect’s house.

Consequent search led to the recovery of nine sachets of suspected shabu, illegal drug paraphernalia, a motorcycle and Azuelo’s caliber .45 pistol with six live bullets.

Azuleo and company were charged for violation of the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002 before the Iloilo Provincial Prosecutors Office.

The Marcos lies

THE most alarming development in national life at present is the proliferation of Marcos lies and the vulnerability of the millennial generation to believe in them. In the last decade, the Marcoses are quietly trying to distort and revise history through the extensive use of social media.

Loving with Christ’s love

October 03,2015 03:22 AM

By: Fr. Roy Cimagala

This, for sure, is no fantasy, or some exaggerated desire, completely gratuitous or with no basis. This, in fact, is what Christ has commanded us: "Love one another as I have loved you." (Jn 13,34)

And I don't think he would give us that commandment without enabling us to follow it.
