Are drug peddlers invading this town?
By: Central Luzon News Center | Nelson Bolos

This came about as 3 drug pusher were arrested while 1 of their kind was killed in an armed encounter on 4 separate entrapment operations here this week.

Slain in a shoot- out with the police this morning was Omar Ugadan of Barangay Tibag, Tarlac.
Ugadan, a known drug personality who “surrendered” to the city police during the advent of the PNP Project Tokhang, but, apparently, continued peddling drugs.

In his reports, PSupt Franklin Estoro revealed that last Wednesday, Jayson Lansang y Nuñez, 37, years old, married, of 3029, Abucay Street, Tondo, Manila, was entrapped in Barangay San Antonio.
Lansang, who yielded 4 sachets of shabu, “was arrested along with his co-hort Chiaro Crisanto Catu y De Guzman, 26, who was caught in possession of the mark money and another sachet of drugs”.
In his report to Tarlac Police Provincial Director PSSupt Ritchie Medardo Posadas, Estoro also disclosed Yesterday Santy Samson y Dela Cruz, 30, of Barangay Panampunan, Tarlac City, was apprehended in a buy-bust operation also in Barangay San Antonio.

Recovered from Samson were 3 sachets of illegal drugs.

“Ugadan was shot dead several meters fronting the house of former mayor Dennis Go when he tried to run away and fired 3 times at my men with a caliber .38 revolver”, Estoro said.

Local residents claimed almost all known pushers from this town were already apprehended since a relentless anti-illegal drugs campaign was launched by the police.

“Nahuli na yatang lahat ang mga kilala naming nagtutulak ng droga dito sa aming barangay kaya taga-ibang lugar na lang ang nagdadala ng droga dito”, said Jojoy Alicaycay, Chairman of Barangay San Antonio.

Last week, 3 known pushers from the municipality of Paniqui, including a public high school teacher, were also arrested by this town’s police Intelligence Unit headed by PInsp Joel Gamboa.

For his part, Barangay Poblacion 1 Kagawad Leslie Bermudez said, “lahat ng mga kilala naming ‘tulak’ sa aming barangay nahuli na o nagsi-alis na. Pero nakapagtataka na mayroon pa rin kaming nababalitaang nakaka-gamit ng shabu. Para tuluyang mawala ang droga, kailangan talagang bantayan ang mga pusher galing sa ibang lugar at sugpuin ang mga gumagawa ng shabu”.

“Hangga’t may gumagawa at nagpapasok ng shabu sa bansa, hindi mawawala ang mga pusher at addict”, added Bermudez.
