Two members of a drug syndicate were killed while the second most wanted personality was arrested during an entrapment operation conducted by Quezon City District Anti-Illegal Drugs (DAID) in Fairview early Friday morning.
Quezon City Police District (QCPD) Police Chief Superintended Edgardo Tinio identified the slain suspects as alias “Denis Durong Mata” and alias “Burdado Calugar” both members of the “Oyot Nunez” drug group syndicate.
The two died on the spot after engaging law enforcers in a shoot out.
The operation also collared the No. 2 wanted personality of Fairview Police identified as John Gonzales Tumalinog alias “John” and “Jay”, of Greater Fairview, Que zon City.
Confiscated from the suspects were a shotgun, .38 caliber gun, P30,000 worth of shabu, the P630 buy-bust money and assorted drug paraphernalia.
QC-DAID elements under Police Superintended Enrico Figueroa conducted the buy-bust at dawn on Friday at the alleged hideout of “Oyot Nunez” in Roces St., Fairview. However, armed men blocked their way that led to the exchange of gunfire, killing the two suspects. Tumalinog was arrested while trying to escape.
