This was the remark after a public high school teacher and 2 “recidivist” drug pushers were arrested in 3 separate buy-bust operations in Gerona, Tarlac last June 14, 2017.

Police Senior Inspector Joel Gamboa, Intelligence Officer of this town’s police said, “first to be entrapped was Johnny Linsao Cortez, 53, who was previously apprehended for peddling shabu”.
Cortez was arrested selling shabu to a police poseur buyer in Barangay Luna from whom 2 sachets of illegal drugs were confiscated.

“Then came the entrapment of Hernando Linsao Cortez, 50, AKA Buddha, in Barangay San Antonio. Six sachets of shabu and a digital micro weighing scale, along with several pieces of drug paraphernalia, were seized from Hernando”, Gamboa revealed.

Johnny and Hernando are brothers and both reside in Barangay Samput, Paniqui.
Gamboa also disclosed that Department of Education (DepEd) high school teacher Oscar Bacho Linsao Jr. was the 3rd to be entrapped in Barangay Poblacion 3.

The 49-year old Linsao resides at Barangay Poblacion Norte in Paniqui town and teaches at the Moncada National High School, Campo Santo 1 Norte, Moncada, as DepED teacher 1.

PO3 Artem Balagtas, the police investigator on the 3 buy bust cases, revealed that Hernando Cortez was previously arrested 3 times in Paniqui town all for selling shabu the latest of which was in 2015.
While Johnny Cortez was his 2nd time to be arrested for illegal drugs all in Paniqui town.

Balagtas also said, “Linsao and Hernando both tested positive of methamphetamine”.
According to Gamboa, “the successful entrapment on the 3 suspects was the result of the “focused and very diligent ‘intel-work’ of PO3 Mike Lester Bustillos”.

Bustillos is the Intelligence PNCO and leads the 8-member Intelligence unit of the Gerona police.
Meanwhile, PSSupt Ritchie Medardo Posadas, Police Provincial Director, lauded the arrest of the teacher Linsao along with the Cortez brothers.

“The successive arrests of 3 suspected drug pushers within 24 hours by the group of (Senior Inspector Joel) Gamboa is a laudable accomplishment. Their determined efforts to rid their town of illegal drugs peddlers deserve commendation”, said Posadas.
