Are drug peddlers migrating?
By: Central Luzon News Center | Nelson Bolos

This was the question posed after a “new big time pusher” was killed here in an armed encounter with the police at Barangay Tagumbao in Gerona, Tarlac.

In his report, PSupt Franklin Estoro identified the slain pusher as Rodelio Sabalo y Unat, 34, who is said to be new resident of Barangay Camangaan East, Moncada town.

Recovered from Sabalo were a caliber .9MM pistol , 16 sachets of shabu, a Honda TMX 155 motorcycle, among others.

According to PInsp Joel Gamboa, Sabalo sold 2 sachets of shabu to police poseur buyer PO2 Archie Niegos but resisted arrest and fired at the apprehending police team.

He was killed in the ensuing firefight with the policemen.

“From the looks of it (Sabalo’s killing), he is prepared to fight the police. He immediately drew his gun when he was about to be arrested and fired at my men”, said Estoro.

“Nahuli na naming lahat ang mga known pushers na taga-Gerona), pero may mga bagong pushers na lumilitaw na galing sa ibang lugar”, said Gamboa, this town’s long time Intelligence chief.
A few days ago, Gamboa’s Intel group arrested 3 pushers who are all from the neighbor town of Paniqui including a public high school teacher.

From the documents found from his body, Sabalo is from Barangay Magatos, Asuncion town, Davao Del Norte.

He moved to Barangay Camangaan East barely a couple of months ago.
