CAMP DANGWA, LA TRINIDAD, Benguet: Two alleged drug traders were killed in Upper Tomay here after they engaged policemen who caught them selling shabu. Suspects Jerry Toda and Alan Lorenzano were intercepted by the Regional Intelligence Unit 14 Benguet Provincial Anti-Illegal Drug Unit and local policemen selling shabu to undercover agents but fled on a van with plate number RDE-107 which prompted a running gun battle and resulted to their death.
