SAN PEDRO CITY, Laguna—The police’s anti-illegal drug operations continued in Laguna with another suspect slain in an encounter with authorities in Luisiana town.
Inspector Roselle Orate, Laguna police information officer, in a text message Friday identified the slain suspect as Edwin Chavez, 47, a resident of Barangay San Antonio. Chavez was listed as the 4th most wanted illegal drug personality in the municipality.
Orate said police conducted a buy bust operation around 11 p.m. on Thursday near Chavez’s residence, with a police operative going undercover to buy suspected “shabu” worth P300.
“The suspect may have sensed that the customer he (just) had transacted with was a police officer. (Chavez) drew his revolver and fired…” Orate said.
This prompted other policemen, who were monitoring from a distance, to fire back. Chavez was shot and killed.
Earlier this week, two other drug suspects were also killed in subsequent buy-bust operations in Sta. Rosa City, Laguna.
