Bulacan gov wants stop to killings, shutdown of main source of drugs

Malolos City, Bulacan — Governor Wilhelmino M. Sy-Alvarado wants a stop to the killings in Bulacan and, in a meeting with top police officials in the province yesterday, he challenged law enforcers to get to the main source of drugs in the province, shut it down, and put all its operators, financier, and protectors in jail.

Alvarado said he was just as concerned about the illegal drugs problem as he is with the bloodshed that has not stopped since the police waged its war on illegal drugs in the province.

Coming face-to-face with Senior Superintendent Romeo M. Caramat  Jr., Police Provincial Office (PPO) director, the governor urged all chiefs of police in the province, operational units, and intelligence and investigation officers under Caramat to come together and plan a strike at the heart of the main source of all drugs in the province.

“This is the only solution I can see to stop the killings in our beloved province. When we get the main source of drugs in Bulacan, jail the leaders of these syndicates, then we won’t have to go after and resort to killing pushers on the streets,” said Alvarado.

His call on the PPO came a day after he learned about separate buy-bust operations in Malolos City and Bocaue that resulted in the killing of two armed drug pushers last Sunday night.

Both Supt. Heryl L. Bruno, chief of the Malolos City Police, and Chief Inspector Andrei Anthony S. Manglo of Hagonoy swore the suspects in the two anti-narcotics operations – Rommel Felipe Dungo, 42, a laborer, and Ted Estefany Oafellas, 52, married and a Bicolano – pulled out and fired their guns at the police.
